Is there any difference between Tehsil and Sub-Division?
In Punjab, we can say that there is no difference between a tehsil and a sub-divison. Every tehsil of Punjab is also a sub-divison and vice versa. They share the same boundary. But this is not the case for all states of India. You are reading this page on punjab data dot com. The tehsils and sub-divisons are different in some states of India.
In general, districts are divided into Sub-Divisions for the civil administration purpose. A Sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM) is the officer incharge of a sub-divison and is selected from the State Civil Services (like Punjab Civil Services or PCS) cadre. In most of the states, the sub-divisions are further divided into Tehsils or Talukas for the purpose of land records and revenue. The revenue officer, who is incharge of a tehsil is called as "Tehsildar".
