Data Location



Two sites: https://www.indiapost.gov.in/pin/ https://data.gov.in/dataset/all-india-pincode-directory The data is available in CSV format and is updated on 22-Jul-2013. The data consists of pincodes along with post office information like address and postal code but does NOT include geographic boundaries or lat long information. The data can also be searched by location or pincode on 'https://www.indiapost.gov.in/'. The data is available completely and is from official source, i.e the site managed by National Informatics Center which is a government body. It is hard to say whether the post office address which forms each result could be connected to a lat/long location with other information as per the census requirements
