the erstwhile Mumbai Presidency has divisions - several districts together and 
sub-divisions - several taluks together. So you have:
division - divisional commissioner
district - deputy commissioner
sub-division - assistant commissioner
taluk - tahsildar
this is followed in Karnataka for example.

Madras Presidency area:
District - collector
block - RDO (two or more taluks)
taluk - tahsildar
this is followed in Tamilnadu
