Indian addresses are relatively complex as there are multiple ways of writing a single address, and there could be many missing components in an address. India faces the challenges of reliable verified data below city level and relies mostly on localized intelligence resources. Also Addressing structure varies for different cities within the country. MapmyIndia address data is created with these considerations and thus localisations are standardized without any loss of information and integrated in the overall data to maintain uniformity.
