About Us
Ekta Books has a 33 year long experience in the book publishing industry. It is one among the line of a few book publishers that have successfully completed a long journey. From its humble roots in Patan, Ekta Books has come a long way to being the best in the publishing sector. Its quality in both material and content in textbooks is unrivalled.

Ekta Books was established in 1982 under the able leadership of Mr. Ramchandra Timothy. This organization was named Ekta Books and Stationers at the outset. Initially, the organization focused on distributing educational and sports materials. Gradually, it entered a new phase of publishing and in accordance to the laws of the then government it was named Ekta Books Distributors Pvt. Ltd. From then on, the organization has been run by the same name. However, for ease it is most popularly known as Ekta Prakasan or Ekta Books.

The founder and proprietor of Ekta Books, Mr. Ramchandra Timothy, respectfully points to have been inspired by his uncle Dr. Adon Rongong in delving into the publishing area. Mr. Rongong had established Himali Prakasan in Biratnagar and Patan Book House at Patan. However, due to the new education policies brought into act by the then government against private companies, these programs could not flourish. After the unsuccessful attempts of Himali Prakasan and Patan Book House, Timothy had a new challenge at hand. Timothy ventured into establishing Hyssop Book House at Patan. Taking into account the possible consequences of continuing in Patan, Timothy handed over Hyssop to Bhim Lal Maharjan in order to begin Ekta Books and Stationers at Thapathali. This was later meant to become a landmark in the history of publishing in Nepal. In 1990, a sister concern Ekta Educational Palace at Man Bhawan, Lalitpur was established to cater to the rising necessity of books in Nepal.
