India launches tour-planning website developed by IIT alumni

New Delhi, Ministry of Tourism, 05-May-2014 – Tripigator.com, a travel planning engine, was launched today in Delhi in partnership with Incredible India of Ministry of Tourism. Tripigator.com instantly generates personalized travel itineraries on fewer inputs and significantly reduces users’ effort by replacing ten tabs with one tab.

The website has been chosen as the official travel planner by the Ministry of Tourism and will also be available on Incredible India website. The website was unveiled by Mr. Parvez Dewan, Secretary Ministry of Tourism, Govt. of India and its three founders – Mukul Garg, Piyush Grover, and Karteek Narumanchi – protégé of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT).

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Dewan said that with introduction of this technology, travelling to and within India will become easier to plan. The process will be more enjoyable for all tourists, from within the country and internationally.

Tripigator will help both domestic and international travellers in planning their trips seamlessly by asking basic inputs such as timeline, budget, areas of interest (adventure, romantic, nature etc.) and destinations of choice. The technology creates a range of travel itineraries in no time and ranks them as per user’s experience.
