In this paper, we obtain lower and upper bounds on the number of parity check digits of a linear code that corrects  $e$ or less errors within a sub-block. An example of such a code is provided.  We introduce  blockwise-tensor product of matrices and using this, we propose  classes of error locating codes (or EL-codes) that can detect $e$ or less errors within a sub-block and locate several such corrupted sub-blocks.
