Royal Charter

History of Royal Charter

The Institution of Engineers (India) was incorporated by Royal Charter on September 9, 1935 by King and Emperor George V at the Court at Buckingham Palace, London and remains the only professional body in India to be accorded this honour. This endowed the Corporate Members of the Institution with the right to use the title ‘Chartered Engineer’ after their names, implying that they are qualified engineers deemed worthy to hold a Charter. The ‘Royal Charter Day’ was celebrated by IEI all over the country on September 9, 2018. A brief accounts of celebration as received from various Centres are reported hereunder.
