The Auroville Foundation has been authorised to issue tax exemption receipts to Indian tax payers for donations favouring Matrimandir, Lands for Auroville Unified (LFAU), as well as for educational & scientific research projects. Such donations are 100% tax exempted under section35.1.ii or 35.1.iii of the Indian Income Tax Act.
Donations for all other projects in Auroville, such as Housing, Farms, Forest, etc. are 50% tax exempted for Indian tax payers under section 80G of the Indian Income Tax Act. However, to avail of this facility, donations need to be made via cheque. For further details, refer to www.auroville.org/contents/2835
Indian donors wishing to obtain a tax exempt receipt need to contact firstname.lastname@example.org first in order to determine if the donation proposed is eligible for a tax exemption receipt.
Donations made directly to Auroville from abroad do not qualify for tax exemption in the home country. If you require a tax exemption you are advised to route your donation to Auroville via the Auroville International Centre (AVI) in your respective country.
