For those who might find this interesting or useful..

Rediff India has launched a bus fare search service which currently spans 7 states :-

Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh, West Bengal and Uttar Pradesh.

According to Rediff, the new service also allows users to get a comparative view of the lowest train fare available for the chosen bus route within the same search query. Once a user has finalized the appropriate bus they can book the tickets either through travel agents whose details are provided on the Rediff site or through partner sites.

Try eroad.in

It's by the same man who does erail.in, the excellent train search website, but I don't know if eroad.in is good or bad, I searched for Goa-Hospet (for Hampi) buses and got no results, and we all know there's loads of buses on that route.

Thank you Steven....but I think it includes big cities & private bus operators only ...what if one needs to travel small/interior towns/villages ?

Searched for Bangalore to Mangalore route.
Could not find the govt's bus in the list as well as some of the popular private operators.

Cheers!

I suspect these bus sites cover only those states which already have web info and services, such as Himachal and Rajasthan.
http://redbus.in is an agency that provides bus bookings for the southern states, as well as Gujarat, Maharashtra, Rajasthan and MP.
