Python treats file names as case sensitive, so you probably want

  from xyz.a import B

Do you have an __init__.py in directory xyz so Python knows it is a module?

>but it gives me an error of the kind, object cannot be called?

Not from that line, it doesn't.  Show us the line where you try to
instantiate it.  This kind of thing should work:

  from xyz.a import B
  bb = B()
