Boundaries in India
Status started


Most tagging of boundaries is carried out in accordance with the table in Tag:boundary=administrative.

Boundaries should be marked on a containing way (for small areas) or a relation for larger areas. Administrative boundaries should be marked 'boundary. The admin level for each way or relation should be set according to the following table.

Division type admin-level
National Border 2
Division 3
State 4
District 5
Subdistrict (Tehsil / Mandal / Taluk) 6
Metropolitan Area 7
Municipal Corporation / Municipality / City Council 8
Civic Zone 9
Village or Civic Ward 10

A detailed system for a comprehensive scheme is at Talk:WikiProject_India/Boundaries/Proposal, but this has not yet been widely discussed or adopted.
