Township has two main components: the city or urban area, and surrounding it a Green Belt consisting of
farms and forests. As at the date of this publication, Auroville Foundation
needed to secure in the urban area of Auroville 17% or roughly 210 acres of
land for a unified development. In the Green Belt, the situation is less
advanced, with the Auroville Foundation still needing to secure more than half
the area for cohesive development. The following sections are engaged in
managing, consolidating and other matters related to the land.
1 Land Consolidation Committee (LCC)
Work includes negotiating and purchasing the remaining land in the planned township area in consultation with the office of the Secretary to the Auroville Foundation.

3. Land & Resources Management (LRM)

LRM also deals with land encroachment and legal aspects of the same, with the leasing out fruit trees on AV lands, and taking care of Auroville’s timber resources.
