Hi to all, In nominatim, we need to give exact query(string) which are stored in DB. For example We can get data when search as "guduvancheri", but cant get data when searching as "guduvanchery" or searching as "guduvancher". How to fix these type of issues?

Nominatim does not support similarity searches. You might want to look at Photon (https://github.com/komoot/photon) which feeds off the Nominatim index and claims to have "typo tolerance":

... or see http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Search_engines where you have at least "Pelias" as another solution.
