I was wondering if there are shapefiles for postcode regions in India.

I did find some shapefiles that give the outline of the administrative units in the country but not with postcodes. Right now I am using Google Map API that highlights the region under pin-code.

It looks like the information is not present in public domain. It looks like either you can crowdsource the information or buy it from a thirdparty called MapMyIndia.

I found a blog by Anand.S where he wrote about his crowdsourcing idea. Other than this I couldn't really find anything interesting: mapping-pin-codes

  • Welcome to GIS.SE. It looks like you have two questions here. One indicates you're looking for a shapefile for postcodes of India. The other asks whether you can extract the information under the pin-code. Please edit your question to reflect what you are actually looking for. Possibly split them up into two separate questions. – Fezter Nov 18 '13 at 0:18

    If you are looking for a shapefile of the postcode regions, let me tell you that they exist, but at a price. There is no freely available shapefile for this, AFAIK. – Devdatta Tengshe Nov 18 '13 at 3:31
  • @DevdattaTengshe, thanks and I guessing its outrageously priced right? – feverDream Nov 19 '13 at 6:58
  • It's still not clear what you are looking for. Are you looking for a shapefile? if so, please put that in the question. – Devdatta Tengshe Nov 19 '13 at 6:59

    We had purchased it from mapmyindia. You can contact them here to find the price: mapmyindia.com/about/contact-us – Devdatta Tengshe Nov 19 '13 at 7:02

Maymyindia charges approx Rs. 14Lakhs for entire India pincode data. They charge around Rs. 80k per city.

  • Do you have any affiliation to Mapmyindia? – Aaron Mar 28 '17 at 18:18
