    There are a number of general indicators.Firstly body shape-most are more rounded than centipedes both at the termini and in cross section.Also millipedes commonly have two pairs of legs per segment-centipedes one pair and finally life style.centipedes are generally pedatory where millipedes live mainly on leaf detritus.These are general rules only and a good field guide or internet access is invaluable

    You would do well to contact Bombay Natural History Society through their website. They are 140 years old and have a huge specimen collection.
