Iso 3166-2:in

ISO 3166-2:IN is the entry for codes for the names of the principal subdivisions (e.g., provinces or states) of all countries coded in ISO 3166-1.

Currently for India, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 29 states and 7 Union territories.

Each code consists of two parts, separated by a hyphen. The first part is IN, the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of India. The second part is two letters, currently used in vehicle registration plates, with some exceptions.
