The Council of Architecture (COA) an autonomous Statutory Body of the Government of India, has been constituted by the Government of India under the provisions of the Architects Act, 1972, enacted by the Parliament of India, which came into force on 1st September, 1972.
The Council of Architecture is charged with the responsibility of enforcing the Act throughout the country, including Registration of Architects, regulating the Architectural Profession and Architectural Education throughout India, besides maintaining the Register of Architects. For this purpose the Council of Architecture has framed Regulations as provided for in the Architect’s Act, with the approval of the Government of India.
Here, I have briefly summarized the most recent Council of Architecture regulations and guidelines (2009) in simple language, so as to enable you to understand easily all that is expected from an Architect – his educational qualifications, his Services, his Responsibilities, his Professional Fees, the Schedule of payment, his Professional Liability and Architectural Competitions.
