Sakalbela (Bengali: সকালবেলা, lit.'The Morning') was a Bengali daily newspaper published from Kolkata starting 29 June 2010 that was owned by Saradha Printing & Publication Pvt Ltd., a division of the now-defunct Saradha Group.[1][2][3] The newspaper was published from Kolkata, Siliguri, Durgapur, Guwahati, Agartala, Sivasagar and New Delhi. Saradha Printing & Publication Pvt Ltd also owned the English dailies The Bengal Post & Seven Sisters Post, the Hindi daily Prabhat Barta, and the Urdu daliy Azad Hind.

Following the arrest of Saradha Group chairman Sudipta Sen for chit fund scams in April 2013, all the Saradha Group newspapers including Sakalbela closed down.[4]
