Subject- Engineer’s Bill 2004


Observations



While going through the Engineers Bill 2004 on ECI website, I was surprised to find that at the beginning of the general sections of the bill, The Institution of Engineers (India) Charter 1935 has been included as recognized proving the IEI certification competencies



Do you think that this bill is constitutional in the sense that IEI charter is not proposed to be repealed?



What the bill intends to contemplate is ambiguous as it states that no other person shall be allowed to practice engineering as PE



Only person registered with the ECI shall be allowed



It also contains a reference that registration of Engineers by states or municipal authorities shall be invalid after this proposal comes into notification




My comments


First of all no other authority in India except IEI is authorized to register

Engineers in general

All those invalid & unconstitutional certificates are issued to maintain the ego of IAS lobby

Constitution does not empower any one to chart out such certificates



The IEI charter is a constitutional document empowering its functioning as letters patents which only up to some decades back , high court/supreme court enjoyed the status



Keeping in view the letters patents weight or power, the proposed bill after enactment may be challenged in the court for its contravention & unconstitutionality



It is not understandable why other Institutions do not seek to draw the power from the existing charter of IEI & empower all engineers. The IEI is not a private body or society. It is  empowered as a part of the Indian state as far is the law is concerned in its construction.



In lieu of proposed statutory Engineering Council of India, IEI should be considered as the only nodal body for all other & its powers utilized. Believe me every engineer shall benefit legally while comparing the powers of other registered professionals. Proposition may be certain amendments to the Charter by the Parliament to meet international WTO requirements



Should Engineer’s Bill is approved, it shall dilute IEI charter to nowhere.
