    No basic difference in meaning of two two expressions: Information on/about something or someone. But when something is a source of information you can not use "about", as:

    I shall try to find the information on the internet.
    If you want to know more about India check out the resources: Information on basic facts about India.

    You can not interchange the underlined "on" with about, in that case the meaning will be different.
