Do you know that Indian milestones have color code for highways and other roads? Yes! Wait, the question is what milestones are. Well, milestones are a kind of stones that let people knows how far our destination is, from a certain point.
Milestones show the distance measured between The Head Post Office of the two cities or Gram Panchayat Office or Center Point of the city decided by “Highway Authority” and “The National Survey Bureau”.
Different colors milestones have different meaning and not all roads have the same milestones. The color code varies for the national highway, state highway and district roads.
Yellow & White milestone represents “National Highway- NH”
Green head on white background represents “State Highway- SH”
The blue or black & white represent “City or Major District Roads- MDR”
