DBS: the timeline

The saga of DBS started in 1947, when Jeewan Kumar Ahuja, a young man then, decided to move his family from Dera Ghazi Khan to Delhi. To support himself and his family, Jeewan started a small business, selling medical books on foot or on a bicycle, to young medical students. Soon, the growing sales figure prompted him to think of expanding his business and he opened a small shop in the busiest by-lane in Old Delhi, at Nai Sarak.

Soon, the shop became the Mecca for medical students, doctors, teachers and libraries of medical colleges and hospitals in India as well as all neighbouring countries. And, Delhi Book Store became a household name in the world of medical and non-medical books. The vision which was foreseen in 1947 by Jeewan Kumar Ahuja has been realised; today Delhi Book Store under the supervision of Vijay Ahuja and his son Prateek Ahuja, is Asia's largest showroom of STM books, with a record 150,000 titles on display. Vijay joined the family business in 1974 while Prateek in 2014. In 2015, DBS hired an experienced sales and marketing team to take distribution to the next level.

says Vijay Ahuja of Delhi Book Store, one of the Asia’s largest bookstores in New Delhi.

Vijay AhujaOnline bookstores seemed to be a threat to brick-andmortar bookshops 2-3 years back, but the fad has passed. Early this year, popular online book portal Amazon.com opened up a physical bookstore in Seattle, which is a clear indication that when it comes to books, physical bookstore is important.

“Online bookstores can never match the ambience and feel of a bookstore. Even the discounts at online bookstores have come down, while we continue to offer discounts to the tune of 20-50% on our books. Even in this digital age, our business is steadily growing at 10% per annum", shares Vijay Ahuja of Delhi Book Store (DBS), which is a name in itself. The seed sowed by a foresighted man, Jiwan Kumar Ahuja, after partition, in the name of Delhi Book Store is now spreading its sweet fragrance throughout the globe.

Vijay Ahuja enriches the book store with selected, rare and valuable excellent books from all corners of the world and supplies the same to booksellers in India and abroad.

It is the place, where you can quench your thirst for finding any book on any stream of your choice, displayed categorically under various fields like Medical, Academic, References, Higher Education, Social Sciences, Books for Professionals, Library Science, Coffee Table Books, Books for whole-sellers, retailers and library suppliers, etc., so that one can easily meet the need.

“Each floor of the bookstore houses different categories of books and every book is given a LO (location number) so that the staff can find books easily, told Vijay Ahuja.

Besides purchasing books from renowned international publishers, Delhi Book Store has taken exclusive distribution of more than 10,000 of 2015-2016 titles of well-known overseas publishers like, Springer, Auris Reference, Koros Press, Arcler Press LLC, Delve Publishing LLC, Hayle Medical, Foster Academic,Callisto Reference, Clanrye, NY Research, Magnum Publishing, Intelliz Press, Syrawood Publishing House and Willlford Press and distribution of Elsevier, Cabi, Academic Press, Woodhead Publishing, Syngress, Morgan Kaufmann, Gulf Professional, Butterworth-Heinemann.
