The Birth of Scholar is a story of courage, vision and opportunity. In 1957, our founder, came to Mumbai as a young man with nothing but a few paises in his pockets and a truck load of dreams from a little-known village in Kutch, Gujrat. This was the time of the post-independence era where the onus on education as a national priority had just begun. It was his firm belief that the youth of India was its future and their education was paramount to the growth and development of the New India.
While text books would involve research and development of content, regulatory approvals and a higher infrastructure cost, the manufacturing of notebooks seemed a relatively possible venture.
In 1958, he borrowed from friends and family to set up a humble factory at Fort, Mumbai called Janata Book Mfg. Depot and started producing notebooks and other scholastic stationery products. These offerings served as catalysts to the education of young minds and facilitated their journey towards academic brilliance and hence he decided to name his products as SCHOLAR.
In the pursuit of his vision to help create brighter futures, he set foot on the journey to create one of India’s most trusted and loved stationery brands owned today by the Shah Family.
