Have same requirement, but in Chennai.
You may try the listings in the link below and filter the ones in Bangalore.
My experience so far, most of the commenrical composters do not supply earthworms in small quantities(not worth the effort) even if I am willing to pay for it including shipping.
I will be happy if some of the home vermicomposters can give a few worms.
camaroon: did you try the following?

I was browsing and found this. Let me know. Also cleanindia.org lists these as the worms used in India for vermicomposting
Three species of earthworms are generally used in India for vermicomposting:
Eudrilus eugeniae ( African Night Crawler)
Eisenia foetida ( Tiger Worm)
Perionyx excavatus (India Blues)
Thanks Jeev. I called them and both times was not able to reach the proper person. Based on the intitial response looks like that they would be able to help..
I also contacted http://www.erfindia.org/ and they gave a contact who was willing to help. This contact was already listed in on the comments section in GG's blog. He informed me the worms will not be available for two weeks.
Today I went to a biotech compary in Porur who gave some earthworms(on request) after I bought some vermicompost, Pahchagalvya and a neem based pesticide. Very excited to see how these would turn up.
Sorry about the late reply's. My work has become tight and have been unable to Login and even look after my terrace garden.
If you are interested in starting vermicompost system, I can spare a few worms. I think my system has become stable. PM me if required.
