Manohar Book Service is exclusively dedicated to supplying Indian publications to overseas customers – trade, libraries and individuals. We locate, procure and supply publications from other Indian publishers located in different parts of the country on a wide variety of subjects, including government publications and titles from organizations and institutions. We stock books by all publishers, and although we have only a few thousand titles in the database at present, we hope to increase that many fold in the coming months.
Our efficient and professional service includes:
- Timely execution of orders by the desired mode of despatch.
- Search for titles not available locally or reported to be out of print.
- We charge only Indian prices for Indian publications.
- Strong and secure packing of books.
- We develop personal relationship with our customers.
- Supply of publications from Bangladesh and Nepal in addition to Indian publications.
- Supply runs of old issues of select Indian/foreign journals.
We develop personal relationship with our customers and try to get to know them personally to better shape our services to them.
