India City Polygons

Hello OSM friends,

I am wondering if anybody can help me with obtaining OSM polygon data for India cities? I have been importing the OSM polygons from France into QGIS and am finding very good detailed polygons. As I look through India I am finding it hard to locate any polygon data for cities that are not major metropolitan areas. Does anybody know if there is a specific community dedicated to drawing cities in certain regions? Are there any initiatives within the community to complete certain regions?

Forgive me if my questions are green, I am new to the community.

Happy mapping!


Having good administrative area boundaries requires having sources of boundary data with suitably liberal copyright licences and/or local mappers who are enthusiastic about contributing to OSM.

My impression is that contributing to cloud sourced activities is seen as a first world luxury.
