About us

Navneet Education Limited is a purpose-driven organization, doing what it takes to move the needle and promulgate knowledge. The Gala Family established the brand in 1959 and since then we have been the major force in the dissemination of knowledge to the little learners of India.

What we offer

With heart, hustle, and a lot of magic, we create
  • Educational syllabus & non-syllabus based content in print
  • Scholastic Paper and Non-Paper Stationery products
  • General books and children’s books
  • Syllabus-based Digital Learning

A knowledge tree with sturdy branches

Over the decades, Navneet has emerged as the preferred brand for educational products among teachers and students. The immensely popular products like Vikas workbooks, Gala practice books, YouVa full-scapes, are hot favorites amongst the young segment of India. These products are bestsellers not just because of their superior quality but also because of the nostalgic association of 90’s kids.

In December 2016, we acquired Encyclopedia Britannica (India) Pvt. Ltd. for publishing CBSE Textbooks. With this acquisition, Navneet will focus on serving the regional teaching and learning needs with supplemental digital solutions.

How we started

If you have spent your childhood in India, Navneet books surely form a part of your childhood nostalgia! The story of Navneet’s birth begins in pre-independent India.

A youth with dreams in his eyes travelled from Kutch to Mumbai and set up a humble grocery store at Walkeshwar. With the passage of time, he realized the business potential of school books. While literary books had to be marketed well in order to be sold off the shelves, school books were demanded by the customers themselves- there was a ready and eager market for them. In 1959, he opened a shop in Dhobi Talao called the College Book Depot, which went on to become part of the school books business folklore. And what is today the Navneet Publications conglomerate owned by the Gala family.

A story of brilliant human enterprise with a happy bit of luck, and a serious amount of hard work- our history is as illustrious as the books we publish. But most importantly, it is a story of immensely strong family values and an investment in the right talent to create a legacy of excellence.
