Reasons to be a Licentiate Surveyor
Each and every qualified surveyor should have been desirous to be a Licentiate Surveyor. Because he will be identified as legally appropriate person to perform the duty. Next, registration provides a person appreciated as a professional in the community. His work will be recognized as per standard set by the concerned government authorities. In fact, registration raises the status of a surveyor as a true professional. As a result, licentiate surveyor may be offered the job rather than an unregistered one. In this perspective, government departments and organizations should encourage the surveyor to be licentiated, so that they may provide services to the client, customer and general people in a legal and scientific manner with standard format. In addition, licentiate surveyor must hold the membership of Nepal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (NICS) for the professional rights, welfare and duty. If the professionals be united, their voice for their welfare will be heard by the concerned authorities.
