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.
|2||National borders of India||International standard|

|5||District (Zilla Panchayat)||Current use|
|6||Subdistrict (Tehsil / Mandal / Taluk)||Current use|
|7||Metropolitan area||Current use|
|8||Gram Panchayat||City council (Nagar Panchayat) / Municipality / Municipal Corporation||Current use|
|10||Ward / Gram Sabha||Civic ward||Proposed|
