    Mehtas of Gujarat

    In Gujarat, the term Mehta often means ‘teacher’ or ‘accountant’, probably because in colonial times many people with the Mehta surname were educated and took up those jobs.

    Some Parsi families which migrated to Western India due to persecution by Muslim rulers in Persia, took Mehta as their surname with the most notable example being Zubin Mehta.

    Mehtas are today among the most successful entrepreneurs and industrialists in Gujarat and Mumbai, of which the Mehta Group is an example.
