Search for "Kottayam, Kerala, India" and the results list "Kottayam, Alapppuzha, Kerala, India", Alappuzha being the county. However the result should be "Kottayam, Kottayam, Kerala, India". The town of Kottayam is located in the county of Kottayam. The county itself gets its name from the town.

It looks like there is no county named 'Kottayam' in OSM. If it is not mapped, nominatim cannot use it. Please note further that the county of Alappuzha is currently mapped as a place node. As long as the counties are not mapped with their boundaries, nominatim may get the county still wrong.
