This Indian Standard was adopted by the Bureau of Indian Standards, after the draft finalized by the
Methods of Measurement of Works of Civil Engineering ( Excluding River Valley Projects ) Sectional
Committee had been approved by the Civil Engineering Division Council. Measurement occupies a very important place in the planning and execution of any civil engineering work from the time of f;rst estimates to the final completion and settlement of payment in the project. Methods followed for measurements are not uniform and considerable difl‘erence exists between the practices follo\r cd by one construction agency and the State Government Departments. While it is recognised th:\t each system of measurment has to be specifcally related to the administratl.:e and financial organiz:itions within the Department responsible for the work unification of the various systems at technic:4 level has been accepted as very desirable specially as it permits wider section of operation civil engineering contractors and elimmates ambiguties arising out of inadequate understanding of various system followed. Measurement of earth work basically related to the manual method of excavation, carriage and filling is covered in Part 1. With the advent of machinery for this operation, many lacunae in the methodology for the measurement have become apparent and thus necessity has been felt to formulate ‘nL rJ lL‘Xp‘.l.“n‘rLnL+ ..J3-Lf ‘.n1AI‘“_‘,I,lI U1C ”A1’ .I,. ,l. lnL..X,..l.b..LfiJ_ 1_G_l^l+l ~ “,l.l1cL t ,;.i,.l_ll*lll _.

For the purpose of deciding whether a particular requirement of this standard is complied with, the final value, observed or calculated, expressing the result of measurement, shall be rounded off in accordance with IS 2:1960 ‘Rules fo rounding off numerical values C revised ).’ The number of significant places retained in the rounded off value should be the same as that of the specified value in this standard.
