For a fuller enjoyment of and access to Auroville's services, guests in Auroville have the privilege of obtaining the Aurocard -- the smart, safe way to financial transactions. Whether you want to eat out at a restaurant or shop for AV products, the Aurocard offers you greater ease of access and the chance to participate in Auroville's unique "cashless economy".
Visiting guests who stay in Auroville for at least one week can obtain smart cards. All major guest houses, restaurants and shopping places have an Aurocard reader, and all financial transfers can be done via the card and reader. The cards are available at the Financial Service offices or may be issued at major guest houses, against a cash deposit for adding credit to the card.
