(Auroville Master Plan, 2001:) “In August 1999, the Auroville Maintenance Fund / Financial Service introduced a new software which provides for the possibility for each Aurovilian to have both a cash and a kind account. This is meant to be a tool to help Auroville to move into an internal economy where there is no exchange of money. It is hoped that the needs of Aurovilians who are now covered either by themselves, by projects or by the commercial units for whom they work, will progressively be covered in a different way through the combined resources of the community.”
