Guests in Auroville are asked, as are the Aurovilian residents, to contribute financially towards the maintenance and development of the township and its infrastructure (for instance, water, roads, electricity, afforestation, farms, education and so on...)Presently, guests are requested to give a contribution of Rs 150 per day per adult, reduced for students and teenagers up to the age of 18. This contribution is already included in payments via registered guesthouses.
Non-registered guesthouse contributions
Guests who are staying in Auroville in an unregistered guesthouse, with family or friends, or in a house-sitting arrangement, are expected to contribute Rs.150 per day of their stay in Auroville. This will be deducted from the guest's Financial Service account. Guests, who have no account, can pay directly to the Financial Service, where they will be given a Guest Card, and it is the responsibility of the Aurovilian host to make sure this happens.
