Sub Domain (fourth-level) Registration Services:
This section of the site allows you to register Sub Domains (fourth-level), if you are already holding a third-level domain name (eg. xyz.gov.in) under GOV.IN and the third level domain is hosted with NIC.
The state governments can register a third-level domain name under GOV.IN and then the fourth-level sub domains can be registered for its various Ministries / Departments / Organisations etc…. For example, Government of Delhi may register a third-level domain name like delhi.gov.in and then the fourth-level sub domains may be registered for its various Departments like education.delhi.gov.in, tourism..delhi.gov.in, transport.delhi.gov.in, etc…
Similarly a Department/Organisation can register a third-level domain name under GOV.IN and then the department can register fourth-level domains for its branches/divisions/offices across the country. For example, Comptroller and Auditor General of India(CAG) may register third-level a domain like cag.gov.in and then it may register the fourth-level domains for its various offices across the country like agup.cag.gov.in, agmp.cag.gov.in, agtn.cag.gov.in etc…
