    Re: Mrs. Shobha is leaving to Delhi this evening/by this evening.

    both are okay, but they have different meanings.
    "Mrs. Shoba is leaving to Delhi by this evening"
    ::means that she is leaving no later than, or before this evening - maybe she will leave in the morning or the afternoon.
    "Mrs. Shoba is leaving to Delhi this evening" means that she will leave at that time, and no other time.
    hth.
