if you're in the US, the short answer is probably "you can't" but look on this list and find out where it applies to you:

lol keep doing what you're doing... In India, you don't need a license to practice .. well .. legally you do but no one is going to check.  hire engineers to calculate structures and you're fine

hire another architect.. there ain't no shortcuts.  Just because someone knows how to pull out tooth, doesn't mean he can skip medical school, take exams and become a dentist.  This is a professional field (well atleast here in the West) and everyone is required to go by the rules.  Most of us in America would rather not go through the ridiculous Bachelors, Masters, IDP, licensing exam requirments to become an architect you know.

I doubt many people on this forum have much info on legal processes in India.

Mostly Euro/ US centric.
