India's admin2 subdivisions are not updated for some admin1 divisions. For example, API call(http://api.geonames.org/childrenJSON?geonameId=1270770&username=demo) for children of Gujarat (admin1 division of India) returns 26 results (i.e. admin2 subdivisions). However, wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_districts_of_Gujarat) tells that in 2013, the number of admin2 subdivisions of Gujarat were increased from 26 to 33.

Same goes for NCT. The API (http://api.geonames.org/childrenJSON?geonameId=1273293&username=demo) returns 9 results but Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_districts_of_Delhi) tells that admin2 subdivision have been increased to 11.

I have only tested for these two divisions yet. Here is the list of all current number of admin2 subdivisions for all admin1 divisions of india.
