Thakur Publishers as a venture was established by a group of students of MBA, and who are founders also, to publish first study notes cum text book for the aspirant, studying students of the U.P. Technical University, which had come in existence just after 2 years of establishment of UPTU, because when the group of students, while studying for the semester examinations were guideless both from teachers as well as from the market as no textbook (as per the Syllabus) was available of any publication. Inspired by this shortcoming, dedication and determination of the group of MBA students of IEM and MLRSM, established a publishing house titled ‘Thakur Publishers’ at Lucknow, because of the University office here, on November 2, 2002, and the aggrieved students generously contributed the collection of their study material for publishing it in form of study notes cum textbook named ‘Hand book’ for the betterment of the future students of U.P Technical University. The first publication, which came out during Nov-Dec 2002 for 1st semester of MBA, was marketed by the said group of students in almost all the colleges affiliated to the U.P Technical University in U.P. only. Since U.P Technical University is also looking after Uttranchal, and to achieve its mission to serve maximum number of students with better quality and up-to-date education matter in the field of MBA/Technical Education, Thakur Publishers expanded its selling area in subsequent years in Uttranchal and Delhi too, through Whole sellers, Distributors and Retailers, a well established network, so that students anywhere do not get upset for non-availability of the book at their location.
Initially students hesitated to purchase the book as it was not from any renowned/ branded publisher in the field or its status in the market was not known, but later whosoever purchased the book, appreciated the book as it contained matter, not only useful for successful clearing of the semester examinations, but was also found very useful in their future working with firm or in running their own establishment, etc. Students also appreciated the effort of their senior group of students, who took out the publication.
All study notes/text books are screened time-to-time to update them with the present trend in the field occurring/happenings indigenously or globally.
These books are unit wise/module wise/chapter wise, easy to learn and understand the method of the subject and also make intricate subjects a fun loving experience, by putting the matter in a simple language.
