Milestones are constructed to provide reference points along the road. This can be used to reassure travellers that the proper path is being followed, and to indicate either distance travelled or the remaining distance to a destination. Such references are also used to by maintenance engineers and emergency services to direct them to specific points where their presence is required. This term is sometimes used to denote a location on a road even if no physical sign is present. This is useful for accident reporting and other record keeping (e.g., "an accident occurred at the 13 mile mark" even if the road is only marked with a stone once every 10 miles).Answered by LIPSIKA, 16 Oct '12 12:12 pm

Normally it is the railway stations e.g. for delhi it is old delhi railway station which is taken as zero point.Answered by iqbal seth, 16 Oct '12 12:11 pm
