The bookstore traces its roots to the Indian year of independence – 1947 – when Jeewan Kumar Ahuja, a young boy then, decided to move his family from Dera Ghazi Khan (now in Pakistan) to Delhi. To support himself and his family, Jeewan started a small business selling medical books, on foot or on a bicycle, to young medicos. Soon, the growing sales figure prompted him to open a small shop in the busiest by-lane in Old Delhi, in 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 neighbouring countries. In this way, Delhi Book Store became the household name in the world of books.
Today, Delhi Book Store is spread over 20,000 sq ft area, five-floor showroom in Daryaganj and houses some of the rare, out-of-print, collectible and innovative books as well. Knowledgeable, friendly and pro-active staff is always ready to lend a helping hand. For tech-savvy people, Delhi Book Store runs their portal www.delhibookstore.com where one can easily choose and place an order for the books at the comfort of home or office.
