Exactly agreed with Dr. N. Subramanian Sir...

Dr. N. Subramanian wrote:
Dear Er Viren,

Note that in reality the consultancy fee is not actually dependent on the type of work! It depends on your status! If you are well known you can charge anything!

Ten years ago, we used to charge Rs. 1.0 per square feet. I think it is about Rs 5 per square feet. Structural Engineers can charge 0.5% of the structural cost of the structure, whereas Architects can charge 2 to 4% of the total cost of structure, as per Indian Institute of Architects. But in any structure which does not involve architect-for example transmission line tower, you may charge as you like. Some Govt. companies will pay as per time involved but it is difficult to estimate it.

Best wishes

Dear All,

Why there is no talk about the fees for 2 years now? People have forgotten or may be they are happy. This is the problem in India people agree that there is a problem but are afraid to take action? Can we not do something about this?

Forming a association and binding it legally by government should help all the consultancies and companies, though, we generally get into the hands of Architects or Developers to decide our prospects. But definitely that's  not the way forward. In a way I feel factory workers are better than structural engineers because they have an association and they come united to take action for their survival. But we structural engineers have downgraded our own profession. Bloody (pardon for my words) look at the developers how they talk to us as if we are labors!! We all have earned respect in our profession but have forgotten to maintain it!!.

Yes the competition is there nobody can deny it. But lets set a benchmark and then we should compete with each other. The minimum benchmark for the consultancy fee should be set and then, for the consultancies which have already proved their worth should charge accordingly. So that the respect for structural engineers is gained.

Consultancies and MNC's should participate in debating and finalizing this long pending aspiration of structural engineers.

Can we come together to form an association? Please people speak up lets come together as united.

Dear sir

We welcome your advice.

We also should fix the scope of work also. Some times scope will be more
than what we except,, specially in Industrial sector, they go on adding
one by one.

The fee should be based on cost of work. Let us work really on this to
improve our standards.

Thanking you

Regards

DESAI RAMMOHAN

Yes we can make an association, but the thing is each and everyone of us should help each other, seniors have to give a chance to juniors, a constant fee should be fixed and no one should break the rules, finally an agreement should be done by everyone to make the promises confirmed. If anything wrong kindly forgive me.

sir, why not. but who will follow the rules. there is tough competition. every body wants to earn. a fresher engineer will join and look for a job. he is willing to work for a rock bottom price. even doctors are in the same boat. try to form an association and start. let there be beginning. regards satya paul Sat, 28 Nov 2015 05:32:55 +0530 "mr.deshpande"  wrote >                   Dear All, >  > Why there is no talk about the fees for 2 years now?

I do agree with Mr.Deshpande sir for raising this issue again.


Many builders are very much reluctant to give the minimum fee a structural consultant is raising.


And its more pathetic to see some builders who actually wants to construct G+2 or 3 commercial building will send the drawings for  Ground and roof floor only and there by asking a foundation for G + 2 and 3.

This certainly will reduce total area of the building and there by the fees we can ask for.

This issues will be faced by some structural engineers who were on the beginning of their career..

Dilip Chandran

I think we should come together in forming the association all consultancies MNC's should be registered to the association and made mandatory to provide services only if they are registered to the association. Services by the consultancies should align at the rules and regulation set by the association. Anybody not registered to the association should be banned or not recognized either by the fraternity or Government. Any developer/client taking service from the unregistered consultants/MNC's to be deemed for necessary action. The association should be given powers and it should come under the wings of or recognized by Government to make it mandatory. Say for that case just as the municipal of Dubai performs.

If we work on this at least we are sure we have minimum wages to earn. And there is no deviation in our fraternity. Also not treated like donkeys by developers/Architects.

On the contrary we have,
a) auto rickshaw association
b) factory labor association
c) barbers association
d) Doctor's association
e) Architects association..... and take for it
f) scavengers association

we find association for everyone where they stand united for their well being. In this world we are only missing out structural association.

I request all seniors and members to discuss this and be more serious about it we are going to be trend setters for our future engineers.

All those who are running consultancies or working in MNC's please speak and lets call for a meeting and take it forward.

Dear Admin I request you to ping to the registered members of SEFI and members or proprietary of consultancies.

Please speak to take action

Dear Sir,
              One thing overlooked in discussion is type of design we give. In rural areas the design are generally ""manually done"" (""Experience based"") as no government authority is going to check the structural details.
This gives unfair advantage to those who practice wrongly.

Unless, there is a check on designs (Specific details are checked, calculations asked) uniform fee structure might be a dream only.
Architects scope of work is generally defined and checked & hence for them a uniform fee structure is possible.

Regards,
Ankur Shah
