Postal codes in Malaysia

Area codes in Malaysia, usually referred to as postcodes (Malay: poskod), are five digit numeric.

The first two digits of the postcode denote (KEMAMAN,TERENGGANU). However, postcode area boundaries may cross state borders, as areas near to state borders may be served by post offices located in another state, and therefore use postcodes of the assigned post offices.

History

Malaysia's current postcode system was initiated by M. Rajasingam, director-general of Pos Malaysia from 1976 to 1986. In 1976, only addresses in Kuala Lumpur had postcodes. Wanting to expand the postcode system to the whole country, Rajasingam enlisted the help of the French postal authorities. The postcode system made the process of sorting out mail smoother, as it was easier for machines to recognise the numbers. In 2014, Rajasingam was honoured with the Darjah Panglima Jasa Negara (PJN), which carries the title of "Datuk", for his contributions to the postal service.[1]
