Mr. RM Jha graduated from the University of Bihar in 1973. He started his career assisting site contractors at a young age of 19 and has gone a long way since then. Having worked as a project manager with various architects and builders and a work experience over 30 years, Mr Jha is presently the senior most employee at AKDA.

Firm yet polite, Mr Jha has a command on site which is exactly what it takes to get the work done with complete precision and efficiency. His keen interest in music and cricket is what keeps him busy when he is not working.

His hardwork, positive and cheerful attitude and the know-how of every technicality makes him an inspirational member of our AKDA team.
