Subdivision (country subdivision)
The term subdivision refers to a partition of an Indian state below the level of a district but above the level of a subdistrict ('taluk', 'tehsil', 'community development block', 'mandal', or 'circle' depending on the state). In other words, a district may have multiple subdivisions, and one of those subdivisions may contain multiple subdistricts and municipalities.
Admistration in a subdivision is carried out by SDM (Sub Divisional Magistrate) which is an entry level IAS officer or State Civil Service Member.
Many sub divisions generally together form a district which is administered by a District Collector.
