A group of practicing valuers actively engaged in the profession, regularly attending seminars, conferences and fellowships on valuation came in contact with some practitioners and academicians from all over the globe by attending the World Valuation Congresses in Vancouver, Singapore and London.
While interacting with them, it was found that there was a difference in valuation practiced in India and that outside India. The practice developed outside India appealed to them mainly because the practitioners outside India, even in developing countries, could not practice without an academic qualification in valuation due to the Valuers' Act, regulating the valuation profession. Whereas, even today, in India there is no such Act to regulate the valuation profession.
This group studied the courses offered across the globe and developed a curriculum suitable to Indian requirements and approached BVM Engineering College, affiliated to Sardar Patel University (SPU), Vallabh Vidyanagar, Gujarat for introduction of the valuation courses and met late Dr B. P. Swadas, Principal of the college cum Dean faculty of engineering and technology SPU and late Dr D. D. Jadeja, Vice Chancellor, SPU. Dr Jadeja immediately agreed on following conditions:
