Many thanks to all the residents who participated in this decision-making event!

Dear Residents, here are the results of the RAD (voting):

“To pause all clearing, infrastructure laying and permanent construction work on the Right of Ways of Crown, Radials and Outer Ring in order to enable the community to define a way forward for Auroville’s development, following:
  • collective processes,
  • the ‘Master Plan: Perspective 2025’ framework,
  • and other relevant regulations.
The outcome shall be approved through a ratified Residents’ Assembly Decision-making process, before the above specified clearing, infrastructure laying and permanent construction work resumes”.

A total of 899 valid votes have been submitted online and in-person. The number of participants exceeded the 10 per cent quorum required to validate the decision (243 votes).*

* Based on data received form the Residents Service, the total adult population of our community eligible to participate in RADs (age – above 18, confirmed Aurovilians) is 2,427 (as of the month of January 2022).

Residents’ Assembly Decision:

  • 89% (803) Aurovilians supported the above proposal.
  • 11% (96) Aurovilians DID NOT support it.

According to the RAD policy:

“8. Responsibility for implementing decisions made through this RAD process lies with the concerned working group/s or resident/s”.

With gratitude,
The Residents’ Assembly Service
