Mr. Rajesh Chouta is a man with a vision. He is a man who chased success and achieved it. As a bright and enthusiastic Electronics and Communications Engineering Graduate, he joined the highly reputed company ABB, Bangalore and started his professional career. Later, after two years, he quit ABB and started his own venture, Digital Systems in Mangalore in 1995. This was followed with IIHT, the Hardware and Training Network centre in 1997. Today the centre has branches in Udupi, Bhatkal and Kasargod and has 15000 students who were successfully passed out from IIHT to stand for its success saga. The ever growing demand for Professional Engineering education to meet the escalating demands made Mr. Chouta think about establishing quality Educational Institutions. This resulted in the foundation of Rajalaxmi Educaion Trust. Under its wings functions Mangalore Institute of Technology and Engineering at Mijar. As a man of constant striving Mr. Chouta is not willing to rest on his laurels. His eyes have been set on the horizon to achieve more and to mould a better tomorrow for his fellow humans.


Mrs Savitha Chouta, a science graduate, has been very instrumental in the success of IIHT Training Centres established by her husband Mr. Rajesh Chouta. While leading the Organization as a Director, she started to pursue her Post Graduation in Sociology. Later she completed her M.Phil in the subject and took her MBA in HR. Her Skills as an Entrepreneur and Educationalist par excellence came to light with her successfully setting up Indian English Academy at the IIHT centres in Mangalore, Udupi, Bhatkal and Kasargod. The initiative, aimed to develop the communication skills and Interpersonal behavior of the students earned her much praise from the public and the educational fraternity alike.
