Benko Gambit I dont see much material in bookshops about this opening. I wanted to delve in to the depths of it.. Does anyone know of any web resources or even books which cover this opening fully.

Very recent.

Also check the games with this opening played by Khalifman.

For older books there is one by Jacobs, but likely the best of the older bookds is by John Fedorowicz.

Good luck with this opening. It is one of my favorites.

if you read NIC If you read NIC you have to look at something they call the "Volga Gambit." to see articles on the Benko Gambit.

This is not correct - the Volga Gambit refers to a system wherein black plays an early e6. But the NIC folks are more interested in making a political statement than understanding chess.
