The Backbone of Auroville

The present team has issued more than three thousand letters (certificates of residence) and helped to register approximately 1000 new residents. The team updates the Master List of all the residents' data on a daily basis, provides working groups with information needed about Aurovilians, and sends lists of arrival and departure for non-Indians to Financial Service, FFRO and AV Foundation and prepares monthly nationality breakup.

The Auroville Residents Service is the only service of its kind in Auroville. It facilitates visa extension, registration of passports, Newcomer registration, updating Master List of residents, and issuing proof of residency for OCI, new passport applications, etc.

Recently, the team worked in a new programme with AIIS and it was a very challenging task for it took 6 months just to learn it.

The Residents Service provides its full support for the community on multiple levels.
