We present near-IR Color-Magnitude Diagrams and physical parameters for a sample of 24 Galactic Globular Clusters toward the Bulge direction. In this paper we discuss the properties of twelve new clusters (out of 24) in addition to those previously studied and published by our group. The compilation includes measurements of the cluster reddening, distance, photometric metallicity, Horizontal Branch Red Clump, Red Giant Branch morphological (i.e. mean ridge lines) and evolutionary (i.e. bump and tip) features. The compilation is available in electronic form through the WorldWideWeb, and it will be updated regularly.
