hi,

I have updated an OSM data (osm_id: 5319742462) as suburb:Valasaravakkam.

http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/5319742462

But still, I got incorrect old data as suburb:Virugambakkam.

AFAIK, Nominatim ignores any address information on the node except for the postal code and house number.

See the FAQ of Nominatim on how you can fix an incorrect address. It says that you have to add a node or area, it does not mention that you can change it by adding addr:suburb.

Added a new data with correct address details, but still, nominatim shows incorrect data. http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/5321788696

With http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/details.php?place_id=223951484 you can see how the address is constructed. I got this URL by typing "3S Touch Service Solutions Private Limited" on the search box of http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org

I do not understand "Added a new data with correct address details". Did you add a node for the Valasaravakkam suburb ? If not, you have to do that, tweaking the node representing your company won't help. In case you added the node, it only works when it's closer than the other suburb nodes. So you could move the suburb node a bit, but probably break other addresses. Adding an area for the suburb is really the best solution.

The node for Valasaravakkam is tagged as a town, not a suburb. Therefore, Virugambakkam is the closest suburb and that's why nominatim is saying what it is.

(Update: while this is still true and should be kept in mind when troubleshooting, it is likely not the reason for the issue here)

Nominatim has a different database. It needs some time to update it. Your question was just very few hours after your edit. Try again tomorrow.
