This might have been asked before but I couldn't get a similar question. I am working on an application which will have addresses in India populated using dropdowns till 4 levels.

State => District => Tahsil/Municpality(based on rural/urban) => Village/Ward(based on rural/urban).

Where can I get this data with full hierarchy? I checked few places but couldn't get all the data as a single file or in a few files. I got a list of villages from here but this will give out 35 files for 35 states and it doesn't have Urban wards.

Yo can get all the required data from official website data.gov.in. The data seems to be divided into state level, so maybe you will have to download ~31 csvs'. They have csv, ods, etc. they also support api calls, yo can check this feature, which could save you from downloading separate files.
