A tehsil is an administrative division in India and denotes a sub-district. In some states, they are also known as talukas or mandals. Tehsil is generally a land area that serves as the administrative centre to a city or a town and includes towns and sometimes villages. Within a tehsil's jurisdiction, the tehsil offices exercise some fiscal and administrative power over the municipalities and the villages. A tehsil officer is known as Tahsildar or at times Talukdar. At times, tehsils are also known as "blocks".
Tehsils can be found in every state of India; Andhra Pradesh being one of them. The above map gives you an insight into the tehsils of the state.
