Support the Petition

for Legislation of Engineers Bill

The engineering fraternity is going through challenging times. On the one hand the country is in the development mode with projects of all sizes in all sectors either having taken off or on the anvil. When that is the case and the fact that engineers are a MUST for any project it is well nigh imperative that their status, title and profession be suitably protected.

“Matters Relating to Engineering Fraternity” comprises of two sections. The First contains matter on the “Legislation for Engineers” and the Second on Council of Architecture Matters.

  1. “Legislation for Engineers” deals with “Need for Legislation”, then briefly traces the “Draft Engineers Bill – Development So Far”. The “Petition – Legislation for Engineers” is given next. It wraps up with the sub-section “Support the Petition”. The legislation is also necessary to protect the engineers from being summarily held accountable for alleged professional misconduct.
  2. The actions initiated by the Council of Architecture (COA) are restrictive in nature and infringe and violate the fundamental rights guaranteed to all citizens of India by the Constitution vide Article 19. A ‘Note for Engineers Rev July 2014’ gives the gist of the issues. The court cases relating to the matters concerning COA, Indian Institute of Architects (IIA) or an architect are listed and up loaded in a separate sub-section.

To take up the issues with full force for the rights of the engineering fraternity SOLIDARITY is essential and so are FUNDS.

Please send in your contribution to CEAI, which is managing the funds on behalf of the Engineering Fraternity to assist any engineer who is wrongly charged with professional misconduct and also to set right the incorrect actions of COA.

The contribution by you and the expenses incurred by CEAI for these are exempt from IT.
