Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

When I search for 'Kondapur' I see results as "Kondapur, Srila Park Pride, Rangareddy, India". However, the actual area has simple name 'Kondapur, Hyderabad'. How do I change the address mentioned in the search results. The current result should be 'Kondapur, Hyderabad' not 'Kondapur, Srila Park Pride, Rangareddy, India'

Looks like the search result is this: http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/details.php?place_id=5986067105

How do I change parent to Hyderabad city?

Nominatim does not use explicitly coded "parent" relationships; instead it checks the administrative regions. In your case, the point in question lies clearly outside the Hyderabad relation


and inside the Rangareddy relation


so you would have to change these relations, more specifically change this way


which is used by both relations.

Please make sure that you only change the boundary if it really is wrong; do not change the boundary just to achive a desired effect in reverse geocoding. When you do change the boundary, be sure to place a proper changeset comment that explains why you made the change and what your sources for the change are.

Thanks, this answers my question partly. I want to remove 'Srila Park Pride' and just use 'Kondapur, Hyderabad'. Srila Park Pride is a hamlet outside kondapur.
