Administrative structure of India

Tehsils (also called Taluks) are common across urban and rural areas for the administration of land and revenue department to keep tract of land ownership and levy the land tax.

For planning purpose, a district is divided into four levels:

  1. Tehsils
  2. Blocks
  3. Gram Panchayats
  4. Villages

A tehsil may consist of one or more number of blocks. Blocks are usually planning & development units of a district in addition to tehsils. A block represents a compact area for which effective plans are prepared and implemented through Gram Panchayats.

For example, Muzaffarnagar District of Uttar Pradesh has 9 blocks: Muzaffarnagar, Budhana, Baghra, Shahpur, Purquazi, Charthawal, Morna, Jansath, and Khatauli.[1]
