I know for sure Shahid Ali makes quality Sitars (including travel Sitars) used by prominent Artists, and been witness to its sound output.

regarding the others, not sure.

I recently purchased and am currently breaking into a sitar made by Suman Karmakar( P & Brothers). The workmanship is precise and it has excellent sustain. Some other makers in Calcutta are Barun Roy, J.K. Sengupta (his son Satyaki, a sitarist himself, would be a good point of contact), Subhash Bhowmick (Kanailal), Naskar, Manoj Kr. Sardar and Dipak Halder.

Regarding Monoj Kumar Sardar, they use unseasoned wood, and spray lacquer paint to conceal the flaws, not reliable, for few have complained of deformed daands(main stem) within three months of purchase.
