Try geo sadak platform for habitation. You need to parse the information you require.

I'm just curious, do you have the list of 7935 towns and cities? Seems an easy task to get the geospatial coordinates if we have this list (Which every e-commerce firm generally has, I assume).

Regards,
Sai Krishna.

When you say town or city what you refer too?

you can get all districts (735+ ) +  (6500+) sub district from many sources.

Or if have the list of town names i will provide you with the coordinates. 

Kindly share.

This is one option -- if you have the names. 

If the program doesn't recognize the name immediately, it will give you options to select. I never tried for more than 20 city names. Some manual work involved cross-checking, but it worked. 

With best wishes,
Sarath

Per https://lgdirectory.gov.in/, there are 248 municipal corporations and 4,550 other urban local bodies. Full list without coordinates https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1qlnnjJA9PBW9vPtz8tn-7_ZF8GAjPsr2JqNobxBjdJ8/edit?usp=sharing

On OSM, there are around 8,000 points tagged as a city, town or suburb. Have extracted it here as a geojson https://www.kaggle.com/datasets/planemad/openstreetmap-india-cities-and-towns

Please do share how you are using this data.
