Emaill already sent to the Admin.

Following can be included in my humble opinion :
1. All structures be included in scope. Presently this is followed for Bridges and special structures. Mention regarding all structures be included I.e Buildings (all small/big/tall) , Water retaining structures , Industrial structures (Rcc & Steel ).

2. Even for small housings , at least str design from competent str Er and safety certificate be made mandatory just in line with approval of Arch drgs. Loss of life and property needs to be avoided in even small constructions.

3. A Construction Agency having its own design office can take up role of PDC only and not Proof Checker. Regarding PC role , Idea is that if staff engaged in design is not competent enough to do in-house str design , how is it possible to do proof checking. Para 5.3 needs review.

4. All School Buildings , Buildings of Assembly like Religious prayer halls , party halls , Shed Structures etc , shall invariably be designed and proof checked irrespective of their size.

5. All service structures like Overhead water tanks , Underground water reservoirs , Culverts , etc be proof checked .
^
6. Boundary walls are a neglected structural items ,but accidents due to their failures with loss of life is regularily seen in news . These must be designed by a competent str design Er . This needs to be addressed.

7. Structural design thru prime designer be made mandatory for all structures (Big and small , High cost and low cost) as echoed at sl1 above . Proof checking shall be made mandatory for various structures with exception of small buildings , boundary walls and other low cost projects ( be made discretionary).
