The previous question from this user may be relevant for context:

When you have one (or it seems like more) addresses and you want a lat/lon value pair as result (what is ONE single position and NOT a bounding box) you need something like a geocoding solution. All OSM based solutions for that purpose are listet at Search Engines in the OSM wiki.

You should also search for "bulk geocoding" on this FAQ site ... there are some topics already.

Hii stephen , Are the bounding box values give the boundary points of particular location

dear krishkona,

once again: a location is NOT a bounding box!

A bounding box is more like an area!

A location is like a single point, with a value pair of x and y coordinates.

So can you please rephrase your last question, and maybe give a concrete example?

What have you tried so far with the geocoder services mentioned above???
