What is the Limca Book of Records?

Launched in India in 1990, Limca Book of Records (LBR), an Indian equivalent of Guinness Book of World Records, focuses on the unique achievements of Indians across the country and abroad.
 
The record book celebrates the accomplishments of Indians in diverse fields of human endeavour across the globe and is a source of inspiration, especially for the country’s youth.
 
It is published under the patronage of Coca-Cola India, which manufactures the soft drink known as 'Limca'.
Limca Book of Records recognises achievements such as firsts, discoveries, inventions, honours, and awards.
 
The current editor of Limca Book of Records is Vatsala Kaul Banerjee.
 
Limca Book of Records refers to an annual reference book published in the country documenting world records which are further categorised into education, literature, medical science, agriculture, defence, sports, nature, radio, adventure, cinema and business according to the Limca Book of Records rules.
 
The record book, published annually in English, is an extension of the Limca brand.
 
In addition to featuring records, LBR has also been honouring 'People of the Year' for their individual achievements since 1992. A panel of judges selects people who consistently contribute to 'Indian excellence'.

Entry into the LBR is subject to compliance with the Terms and Conditions (T&C) and guidelines applicable to each type of record attempt.
