Inde l' or d' or none
Sometimes you see India written like Inde (Informations générales sur Inde)
Sometimes you see with an l' connaissance de l'Inde
How to know when to use l' and when not to?

Bonjour Divya !
I'd say that you first example is incorrect, as in French you will always use the definite article (here l') with countries in such sentences.
So I would say: Informations générales sur l'Inde
See our related lesson:https://progress.lawlessfrench.com/revision/grammar/using-le-la-l-les-with-continents-countries-and-regions-names
You will use d'Inde when indicating a provenance (from India) :des épices d'IndeJe viens d'Inde.
I hope that's helpful!Bonne journée !
