Venue address is mentioned, but the City is is not mentioned, can we get to know from Venue code

Tamajit Student Expert 24th Oct, 2019

Hi Arjun,

It is highly likely that you would be able to determine your respective name of the city for your venue of concern from the Venue code that you already have with you but if due to any circumstances you are unable to do the same then I would suggest you to search for the printed address of the venue that you have with your disposal on Google maps as then you would very easily be able to obtain the name of the city that has been allotted to you as your venue. Also keep in mind that if the address that is with your disposal has any pin code mentioned along with it then you would most likely be able to determine the city of your venue.

BEST WISHES!
