Any clues about your where-abouts - like coordinates for work, home, goofing off - can help us direct you better !

Typically JC Road. On JC road, near Minerva junction, there's a multi-floor car park. Opp the entrance is a lane. Less than 50m into that lane, on the left side, is a shop called JK (automobiles). Check there.

As Condor has mentioned your coordinates would help in getting a place (hopefully) closer to where you are based. Another shop you might want to try is at the light junction for Commercial Street. This is towards the auto rickshaw parking area and would fall on your right if you are coming from Ulsoor side.

3-4 months of search is a long time.

Can you please share why STP additive is required ?? and the purpose behind it etc etc.

I have this habit of putting in STP additive in Engine oil after each service while I was in Delhi, After coming to BGL i am unable to find it , today I went to JC Road ......inquired at couple of shops ....1 shop owner told me that STP has closed down its shop in India...so i dont know whats the real story but I THINK i would belive him .....STP or any other additive oil increases pick up , smoothens the engine noise..... & etc...... which I can tell you it really does !!
