I am getting 2 Shop By one after other for any category set to anchor

I think you need to open the catalog.xml layout and remove the

<block type="catalog/layer_view" name="catalog.leftnav" after="currency" template="catalog/layer/view.phtml"/>
from the <default>

Do you want to also select “Shop By Brand” on the left side bar? If yes, please have a look at this module. It will help you easily achieve it.

The shop by box appears when the category has the “is anchor” set to YES.  You can change this in the Category Management seciton of the administration panel.  Your products also have to have the attributes that are displayable in the shop-by as “filters”.  The attributes should also be set to “filterable in navigation” in the manage attributes section of admin. 

Let me know if that helps, otherwise pls provide your sandbox so we get a better picture of what’s wrong.
