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.
|Subdistrict (Tehsil / Mandal / Taluk)||6|
|Municipal Corporation / Municipality / City Council||8|
|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.
