I am trying to configure a site. the location for country India.

there is no states list available (I want to add the list of states for india in order to configure shipment stuff)

Any advice guys ? not able to find any documentation on this

Ok I found how to do it. I have updated here so others who are of my level can make use of the information

Go to Administrator → Shipping and taxes → States

you can add states for your country if you need any .
