This Advisory is regarding providing stay accommodation for sādhaka-s in the Mat͟h precincts:
Due to the impact of the pandemic, SCM and its affiliated institutions are functioning with minimal staff. Many non-primary activities and facilities which were being provided pre-pandemic, have been scaled down or even halted, and will be restored only after review of the situation.
Providing accommodation to sādhaka-s is being kept to the barest minimum. Hence, sādhaka-s are requested to seek accommodation facilities only when unavoidable, and it may please be ensured that the Administrative Office is contacted well in advance for this purpose and confirmation obtained regarding availability.
