I am searching for a Zen monastery in India.

My google search returns Vajrayana Tibetan monasteries.

Please let me know if you know a Zen monastery in India.

There's a World Buddhist Directory which may be helpful (I don't know any personally).

This URL -- http://www.buddhanet.info/wbd/search.php?keyword=&search=Search&country_id=42&province_id=0&tradition%5B%5D=mahayana -- returns 35 "Mahayana" matches in India, and several of these are Zen (or probably Zen even if they don't say "Zen").
