  Shankar's Book Agency About Us
The Genesis

As institutes of higher learning in India came up in the 1950s and 60’s, they fuelled the demand for quality reference material. Addressing this need for technical and scientific literature, Shankar’s Book Agency started its operations in Kolkata in 1963, initially servicing the requirements of libraries of technical institutions in the eastern region.

Impressive ClientelePromoted by S.D. Ahuja, who brought with him two decades of experience in sourcing quality publications from overseas, the company soon enjoyed the patronage of premier institutes across India who came to rely on SBA’s reliable and trustworthy services.

We enjoy the support of reputed booksellers spread all over the country who are partnering us in our endeavour to reach more and more Institutes.

Our impressive clientele includes, among others: IITs, DRDOs, NITs.

Exclusive Selling Rights

Representing Indian and overseas giants of the publication industry SBA soon added a string of new foreign publishers with exclusive selling rights in India. Today, SBA offers a wide and latest range of science and engineering books to research scholars in the country.


India’s accelerated research industry necessitated an expansion to a zonal office in New Delhi in 1988. Subsequently progressing from a proprietary to a partnership, and presently to the status of a private limited firm, SBA is evolving from library supplies into wholesale trade, operating through a committed chain of retailers to achieve a deeper penetration of the market. Our services are further supported by an online catalogue which offers a preview of the latest titles.

The SBA philosophy of timely and dependable services has earned us the goodwill of customers from across India. However, we are always open to suggestions to better our services. You may get in touch with us at
