Fiji Sun - - Sunbiz - CHARLES CHAM­BERS RA

The newly launched Fiji In­sti­tute of Sur­vey­ors web­site will, amongst other in­for­ma­tion, al­low the gen­eral pub­lic to lodge com­plaints on bo­gus sur­vey­ors.

The web­site was launched by the Per­ma­nent Sec­re­tary for Min­istry of Lands and Min­eral Re­sources, Josefa Can­iogo dur­ing the in­sti­tute’s 2019 congress held at the Golden Point Re­sort in Ra yes­ter­day.

An­drick Lal, of the Sec­re­tariat of the Pa­cific Com­mu­nity said the web­site con­tained all as­pects of the In­sti­tute.

“It con­tains in­for­ma­tion on who all the reg­is­tered sur­vey­ors of Fiji are, so the pub­lic could go into the site and check this,” Mr Lal said.

He said it also con­tained events of sur­vey­ors in Fiji where they could build ca­pac­i­ties and get up­dated on mod­ern tech­nolo­gies for sur­vey­ing.

“The site also al­lows any­one

who wants to get a sur­vey done to con­tact us through the web­site and at the same time if a sur­veyor was not do­ing his job prop­erly they could also lodge the com­plaint.”

Mr Lal said com­plaints on bo­gus sur­vey­ors have been made through the Min­istry of Lands and not through the in­sti­tute.

“There are some sur­vey­ors who are not reg­is­tered with the in­sti­tute and have been tak­ing money from people but not car­ry­ing out sur­vey­ing in the right way.” Mr Lal said the web­site was now avail­able on­line and people could see all de­tails con­cerned with sur­vey­ing on the site.
