Dear Sefians,

I agree completely with the introductory remarks SEFI Admin Ms. Alpa Sheth has made on the subject of structural defects.

The suggestion to have peer review of structural design and drawings as mandatory is a good one as it avoids any mistake that could be made by the original designer in his/her  structural analysis, assumptions, detail design and drawings.  The cost of the peer review which is very small in the overall cost,  has to be borne by the property developer/contractor in the interest of all.

Regarding insurance for structural consultants to cover professional indemnity, it is a costly business when one considers the low consultation fee the structural consultant gets these days.

As I said earlier in the other posting on RERA, the term 'Structural Defects' in RERA rules needs to be clearly defined as the common man has no understanding or different meanings of it.

In my opinion, this term should be restricted to displacement and cracking of structural elements like Slabs, Beams, Columns, Joints and Foundation beyond a permissible limit which could be spelt out in RERA rules.  It should not include damages to non-structural elements like doors, windows, brick panel walls.

It is also the responsibility of the residents of the buildings in not misusing the building by way of making structural alterations, over loading the floors with heavy storage materials. The residents should also maintain the buildings properly and regularly, particularly with the leakage of roofs and drain pipes.

If the above matter is not properly defined in RERA rules, there would be unnecessary litigation with the property developer and the structural engineer.

With best wishes,

RERA Act is in force Now

This Act is in force now
All such discussions should have been conducted, prior to this Act was approved
This Act falls short of requirements
This protects buyers & does not support buyers professionally
Buyers do not know, what they should do?
Act does not direct buyers how to protect their practical interests
Definition of Engineer is incomplete
Role of Engineer is undefined
Only one benefit has been earned that first time in national statute, Engineer definition has been included though defective
Structural engineer role is undefined
Engineer is structural engineer, but undefined
Now, Engineers are unable to make amendments to this law for it has been approved & notified & now enforce
Recommendations would not work for this is not a IS Code
Best solution is that first engineer should establish itself to do clashes with counter professionals
Engineers have proved to be worst community in this Nation
They are unable to fight for themselves
Only talking, writing & doing nothing else
Even, now Engineer are not serious for they have been used to beg other professional community
They shall never come up to professional level to fight & just confer for no gains at all
Engineers cannot understand law & their implications
Just conferring for sake of conferring is meaningless
Engineers are required to teach general public first, why engineer is required on such Real Estate projects
People do not know anything about all these issues
NOIDA has allowed 4 years, just to do balance of works
What senseless this decision is made?
4 years count nothing
Engineers cannot fight for themselves & none else can fight for them
Just keep talking
Architects shall wash away engineers presence from this Act as well, for they are well organised & able to pool funds to go to courts
Engineers remain busy in calculations only & do not risk all courts petitions
I have very bad experience with Engineering community of Bharat
No free lunch is available anywhere!!!

It is important to recognize structural engineering is an important profession for well being of society and to avoid accidental loss to the country. In this direction engineer's bill was moved without any progress. I understand that the engineers bill will not come through due to inherited lacuna and ambition to include all engineers. The civil engineers is small percentage compared to total engineers. Hence we must device separate strategy to elevate Civil engineers and call them as building engineers. The architect bill pushes building engineers to second grade who can not fight for the justice for the profession and also the society.

Best solution is that first engineer should establish itself to do clashes with counter professionals
Engineers have proved to be worst community in this Nation
They are unable to fight for themselves
Only talking, writing & doing nothing else
Even, now Engineer are not serious for they have been used to beg other professional community
They shall never come up to professional level to fight & just confer for no gains at all
Engineers cannot understand law & their implications
Just conferring for sake of conferring is meaningless
Engineers are required to teach general public first, why engineer is required on such Real Estate projects
People do not know anything about all these issues
NOIDA has allowed 4 years, just to do balance of works
What senseless this decision is made?
4 years count nothing
Engineers cannot fight for themselves & none else can fight for them
Just keep talking
Architects shall wash away engineers presence from this Act as well, for they are well organised & able to pool funds to go to courts
Engineers remain busy in calculations only & do not risk all courts petitions
I have very bad experience with Engineering community of Bharat
No free lunch is available anywhere!!!

           It is important to recognize structural engineering is an important profession for well being of society and to avoid accidental loss to the country. In this direction engineer's bill was moved without any progress. I understand that the engineers bill will not come through due to inherited lacuna and ambition to include all engineers. The civil engineers is small percentage compared to total engineers. Hence we must device separate strategy to elevate Civil engineers and call them as building engineers. The architect bill pushes building engineers to second grade who can not fight for the justice for the profession and also the society.

The suggestion to have peer review of structural design and drawings as mandatory is a good one as it avoids any mistake that could be made by the original designer in his/her structural analysis, assumptions, detail design and drawings. The cost of the peer review which is very small in the overall cost, has to be borne by the property developer/contractor in the interest of all. Regarding insurance for structural consultants to cover professional indemnity, it is a costly business when one considers the low consultation fee the structural consultant gets these days. As I said earlier in the other posting on RERA, the term 'Structural Defects' in RERA rules needs to be clearly defined as the common man has no understanding or different meanings of it. In my opinion, this term should be restricted to displacement and cracking of structural elements like Slabs, Beams, Columns, Joints and Foundation beyond a permissible limit which could be spelt out in RERA rules. It should not include damages to non-structural elements like doors, windows, brick panel walls. It is also the responsibility of the residents of the buildings in not misusing the building by way of making structural alterations, over loading the floors with heavy storage materials. The residents should also maintain the buildings properly and regularly, particularly with the leakage of roofs and drain pipes. If the above matter is not properly defined in RERA rules, there would be unnecessary litigation with the property developer and the structural engineer. With best wishes, N. Prabhakar Chartered Structural Engineer Vasai (E), Pin 401 208

Sir,
Builders, Architects, Engineers and labours etc. involved in the construction of the structure have much responsibility during construction.
Builders have to raise money and all other arrangements for construction.
Architect has to draw a pleasant model of the building for selling with high cost which will help the builders to increase the profit.
But Engineer is silent in building. He has no role in the profit in sale of building. But have role in the saving of material and is not noticed any where, here also silent.
His work is always hidden in the structure but he is responsible for the entire life of building. Builder’s and architect’s   responsibility almost ends at the end of sale but the responsibility of the Engineer continues till the life of building.
Comparing these facts the most responsible person in the construction of the building is Engineer and he takes the top most roles. If any building collapsed the person responsible will be Structural Engineer. Since,the structural drawing speaks the hidden parts of the structure.

Hence, The Engineer must be treated as prime person in construction.

Best Regards,

Sudhakaran.
