Auroville is striving to become a self-sufficient community. At present there
are over 50 income-earning production
units in Auroville, including handicrafts, construction and architecture,
printing and graphic design, electronics, biogas-converter and windmill manufacturing,
fish farming, and cheese-making.
Aurelec, the largest production unit in Auroville, manufactures PC-compatible computers. Aurelec has received a National Productivity Award and is one of the most successful small companies in its field in India.
Auroville's services and production units provide valuable employment
and training for thousands of local villagers, helping them acquire
valued skills and raising their standard of living.
