Council of Architecture (Minimum Standards of Architectural Education) Regulations, 2020 have been notified yesterday. These Regulations shall come into force from the 1st day of November, 2020 and would supersede 1983 Regulations.

Last year, the Supreme Court had held that All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) will not be entitled to impose any regulatory measure in connection with the degrees and diplomas in the subject of architecture. Norms and Regulations set by Council of Architecture and other specified authorities under the Architects Act would have to be followed by an institution imparting education for degrees and diplomas in architecture, the bench comprising the then CJI Justice Ranjan Gogoi, Justice Deepak Gupta and Justice Aniruddha Bose had observed.

As per the new Regulations, the Architecture course shall be of minimum duration of 5 academic years or 10 semesters of 15 to 18 working weeks (90 work days) each. A candidate to the course should pass an examination at the end of the 10+2 scheme of examination with at least 50 per cent. aggregate marks in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics and also at least 50 per cent. marks in aggregate of the 10+2 level examination or passed 10+3 Diploma Examination with Mathematics as compulsory subject with at least 50 per cent. marks in aggregate. The candidate also needs to qualify an Aptitude Test in Architecture conducted by the Council.  

The Regulations also deal with Intake and Migration, Courses and periods of studies, Professional examination, Standards of proficiency and conditions of admissions, qualification of examiners, Standards of staff, equipment, accommodation, training and other facilities for Architecture education.

These Rules have been notified by the Council of Architecture (COA), a body constituted by the Government of India under the provisions of the Architects Act, 1972. The Act provides for registration of Architects, standards of education, recognized qualifications and standards of practice to be complied with by the practicing architects. The Council of Architecture is charged with the responsibility to regulate the education and practice of profession throughout India besides maintaining the register of architects. For this purpose, the Government of India has framed Rules and Council of Architecture has framed Regulations as provided for in the Architects Act, with the approval of Government of India.
