Tourism Industry is one of the most profitable industries which is contributing a substantial amount to foreign exchange, employment and GDP of India. The credit for increased GDP, employment and foreign exchange earnings by Tourism sector in Indian Economy goes to increased rate of foreign tourist arrivals. In the past, tourists had to depend on the brochures drafted by Indian Tourism Development Corporation (/TDC) and other State Tourism Corporations for detailed information related to their trip. However, with advancement in the information technology, traditional marketing approach was slowly replaced by internet based tools. Various tourism promotion agencies have developed their websites to attract more and more national and international tourists. Current study is an attempt to examine the significant difference in information displayed by tourism websites of different zones of India. Data was collected through secondary sources for total 73 variables.
