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

Hi to all,

This is extented of the question nominatim-returns-only-if-query-exactly-matched-data.

Nominatim returns result, if all fields(street,city & state) are matched.

But I want to get result(geocode) for city with state when street not avail, and so on. Any solution for this issue?

Because we can't get geocode for most of street level address in OSM :( .

Sample: http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/search?format=json&street=vengateswara%20street&city=chennai&state=tamilnadu

I have problems understanding your question. At your "sample" there is no result returned. What do you expect and why? Is "Vengateswara Street" existing in the osm data?

Running an instance of https://github.com/komoot/photon (note there interactive demo currently seems to have issues, but the demo api works). Photon does a fuzzy search on Nominatim generated OSM data and in general gives good results.
