    Welcome to GIS SE, have you tried looking on the specific city GIS website for this data download? – artwork21 Aug 17 '16 at 10:26

  • In South Africa, ward boundaries fall under the Demarcation Board, so the shapefiles are available on their website. Does India not have a similar body in charge of the ward boundaries? – Cindy Jayakumar Aug 17 '16 at 12:23
  • If this is likely to be open data then asking at the Open Data Stack Exchange is recommended. – PolyGeo Jul 14 '17 at 5:33

You could try DIVA-GIS where you can select India as Country and Administrative areas as Subject. You should receive three polygon shapefiles.

Load the "IND_adm3.shp" shapefile into your GIS software, open the Attribute Table and in the NAME_3 field, search for 'Jhansi'.

In QGIS, you can write an expression like:

"NAME_3" LIKE 'Jhansi'

There should only be one feature:


Jhansi also exists in the NAME_2 field where four features exist but I believe those show the Jhansi district and not the city.
