Land Board met with the Special Tahsildar (Stamp Duty) in Vanur for the lands R.S.No. 232/2 0.26 acres in Irumbai village, Vanur taluk and provided him the necessary information to be able to receive the documents and thus in the process saved ₹ 70,000 of unnecessary fees which would otherwise had to be paid to the Government.
  3. We are in constant touch with the Tahsildar in Vanur and have had a joint meeting with The Secretary, Auroville Foundation and the Collector in Villupuram regarding certain encroachments like Barakka, Udavi School and Adventure and have requested them to take necessary steps to help us take action against the encroachers.
