According to K. Sreekumar, "(AEPL) is a separate legal entity registered under the provisions of the Indian Companies Act, 1956. It has no relationship with the Mata Amritanandamayi Math". So let's look at the internet domain name owners.
AmritaTV belongs to AEPL. Who owns the internet domain name "amritatv.com"? This kind of information is public to avoid identity usurpation. For instance the domain name "amritatv.com" belongs to "Rajesh C S", who has bought it on behalf of a company named "Amrita Television", located in a city called "Thiruvananthapuram" in the state of Kerala.
We tried the same search with some other domain names and we have found something confusing.
Amrita Books is a subsidiary of AEPL. Who owns the internet domain name "amritabooks.in"? It belongs to a man called "Online Swami"! His first name and last name are very strange. He doesn't act on behalf of any organization, thus the domain name belongs to him personally. His street name is "MAM"? He lives in a city called "Amritapuri" in the state of Kerala. His email address is "firstname.lastname@example.org".
"Online Swami"? Who is it? We tried to know a little bit more about him. We found out that he is the owner of many domain names :

Who pays the bills for his personal internet properties : "Online Swami", AEPL or MAM?
AEPL and MAM have relationships, obviously none of them wants us to know anything about it. Why? Do they have something to hide?
As the websites seem to change by magic as we publish our posts, it is safer to keep a screenshot of this "Online Swami"'s registration.
We find it hard to believe that a family named "Swami" had a baby boy and called him "Online". We find it hard to believe that these domain names don't belong to any organization. We find it hard to believe that there is a street called "MAM" in Amritapuri. This man has lied by filling an official registration form with fake data. A swami is supposed to be spiritually advanced. Does spiritual advancement allow to lie?
He is not even aware that he puts a part of his organization in danger. We prompt "Online Swami" to carefully read this post entitled "Providing fake info during domain registration - does it matter?". Any internet user can try to legally and freely hurt the MAM, he/she just have to fill this form, in order to warn the ICANN that these domain names have inaccurate WhoIs data. If a registrar deletes a domain name, the websites and email addresses hosted under this name are likely to be permanently destroyed. How clever...
