Not able to get correct lat long of an area inside a city

Not able to get correct lat long of an area inside a city.

Example: 

Place : Ballygunge

City : Kolkata

Country : India

 

It works if I give only city and country.

> Correct Lat Long coming "lat":22.567746,"lng":88.347602

But not working if I add any area..

> Wrong Lat Long coming  "lat":39.78373,"lng":-100.445882

 

Please let me know how to pass the area Ballygunge with city and country.

The open.mapquestapi.com geocoder is based on old Open Street Map data. I suspect the neighborhood was not named during the last data ingestion. This data is probably not going to get updated.
