We have observed a huge discrepancy in fetching reverse geo addresses using the following API from Azure subscription.

https://atlas.microsoft.com/search/address/reverse/json?api-version=1.0&countrySet=IN&query=29.9522133333333,78.17232

Resultant Address:
{"summary":{"queryTime":9,"numResults":1},"addresses":[{"address":{"routeNumbers":[],"countryCode":"IN","countrySubdivision":"Madhya Pradesh","countrySecondarySubdivision":"Jabalpur","municipality":"Panagar","country":"India","countryCodeISO3":"IND","freeformAddress":"Panagar, Madhya Pradesh","boundingBox":{"northEast":"23.405549,80.207579","southWest":"23.126200,79.830569","entity":"position"}},"position":"23.188238,79.868942","dataSources":{"geometry":{"id":"879800b0-3eb1-49b8-8c75-05f797918d86"}},"entityType":"Municipality"}]}

Addresses we are getting nowhere near to actual locations on any map (Google, Bing, MapMyIndia). Same latitude and longitude returns actual addresses using Google or MapMyIndia.
Google Maps:Dhobhi Ghat Parking Area, X52C+VW Haridwar, Uttarakhand 249401
MapMyIndia: Haridwar Bypass, Ram Ghat, Haridwar, Uttarakhand. 23 m from Panjabi Vesno Bhojnalaya pin-249401 (India)

Another example (in this case State has changed)
Point: 30.08486 77.80136889
Azure:--Behat--Saharanpur-Uttar Pradesh
Google: NH307-Meerpur-Haridwar-Utrakhand
MapMyIndia: NH 307, Aurangzeb Pur, Bhagwanpur, Haridwar District, Uttarakhand

Please help us in case we are using any wrong API or missing anything. We can have a meeting to discuss our requirements and your suggestions for the same.

    Hello @Demash Analytics ,

    For data issues, we have a fast self reporting tool you can use. For example I entered your co-ordinates and got https://feedback.azuremaps.com/result?q=29.9522133333333#lat=29.952211&lon=78.172317&zoom=16. Now you can select "Add a Place" or "Add a comment" to give your feedback for this and then search again to give feedback for your second issue.

    On closing, you can give your contact email to receive updates as to the status of your issue directly.

    Sincerely,
    IoTGirl
