Biblia Impex India is a New Delhi-based book distribution company founded by the influential Hindu nationalist Sita Ram Goel in 1963 that specializes in books on Indology, Hinduism and Buddhism.[1] The company also publishes books under the imprints Aditya Prakashan and Studio Orientalia. It is currently managed by Sita Ram Goel's son Pradeep Kumar Goel.[2]

In addition to its own publications, Biblia Impex also acts as a distributor to the Adyar Library and Research Centre, Bhandarkar Oriental Research Institute, Central University of Tibetan Studies, Sampurnanand Sanskrit University and Samvad India Foundation.

Aditya Prakashan publishes many works on Indian culture and art, Hindu and Buddhist literature and philosophy, and is notable in particular for works related to Hindu reform movements, including works by K. D. Sethna; Hindu nationalism, including works by Dharampal and K.R. Malkani; and literature on the controversial Out of India theory.

Sita Ram Goel also owned the Voice of India publishing house, which specialized in more controversial, political topics. Following Goel's death, Voice of India is managed by Biblia Impex.
