Sakalbela (Bengali: সকালবেলা) (The Morning) was a Bengali daily newspaper published from Kolkata since 29 June 2010, and owned by the now defunct Saradha Group (Saradha Printing & Publication Pvt Ltd). The newspaper was published from Kolkata, Siliguri, Durgapur, Guwahati, Agartala, Shibsagar and New Delhi. Saradha Printing & Publication Pvt Ltd also owned the English daily: The Bengal Post & Seven Sister's Post, a Hindi daily: Prabhat Barta, and an Urdu daliy: Azad Hind. Mr Sudipta Sen was the chief-editor of all the newspapers.

In April 2013 following the arrest of Mr. Sudipta Sen for chit fund scams, all the Saradha Group newspapers including Sakalbela closed down.
