If for some reason it is not possible to keep money and jewellery in the North, then the cupboard or the safe can be in any room, touching the Southern wall and opening Northwards. It can even be kept in the West. The safe or the cupboard should not be kept under the stairs or in front of a bathroom.
The room in which the safe is kept should be kept neat and tidy and free from useless clutter. This curtails prosperity and keeps the money situation under constraints.
In the strong room, the safe should be kept 1 inch away from the Southern wall. The safe should not be kept on a platform. It should be kept on the floor on its own legs.
The best position of the strong room door is in the Northern or the Eastern wall. In this situation the safe should not be kept facing or near the North door. The door should not be in the South-East, Southwest, North-West or in South and West directions. There should be only one door in the strong room and it should have two planks. The colour of the strong room should be light green or cream.

The Basement/ Cellar 29
The basement remains deprived of the sunlight and solar energy. For this main drawback, it is not advisable in residential plots. If it is absolutely necessary then it should be made in the North-East direction keeping clear of the brahma sthan. Such a basement can be beneficial for the owner and his children. Sunlight should be able to reach at least 1/4 of the basement between 7 AM and 10AM.
The height of the basement should be at least 9 feet. It should be at least 3 feet above the ground level, so that sunlight and air can pass through it.
Basement or the cellar should be wider in the North and East rather than in the South and West. The basement should never be made in the Southwest. It is extremely inauspicious for the health, wealth, prosperity and the longevity of the family members. They keep suffering due to poverty, debts, disputes and serious ailments like polio and cancer. They become unfortunate and have to face sometimes extreme hardships. Thus, one should absolutely refrain from making a basement in the Southwest.
Location of Basement
Basement should never be used as a bedroom. It can be used as a living room, meeting room, pooja room or a study room. If a sick person lives in the basement, he does not recover quickly.
The basement can be used for business purpose. It can also be used as a godown. All the same, despite all efforts, business or profession from the basement can only yield up to 60% profit, so the invoice should be made in the basement but the cash counter should be on the ground level. North-West of the basement is good for professional purpose, but fear of sudden losses and of theft also
