What do you mean by structural and operational parameters?
Any parameter which can be changed easily by vastu owner is called operational parameter. eg. You can place your TV as per your convenience, but you cant change your entrance door at your will. So entrance door is structural but TV position is operational.
How about windows or open spaces in tilted vastu?
For sake of calculation of Vastu Index, we consdier a window facing any intermediate direction as a window facing in each primary direction. Example if in tilted vastu, window faces northwest, consider this as one window facing north and one facing west.
What to do in case of irregular shaped vastu / cut vastu?
Often house layouts are not rectangular. Especially in today's flat culture, buildings are made to make best use of FSI and sell maximum area. This results in irregular shaped vastu. For calculation of irregular shaped or cut vastu, we try to fit them in regular rectangular blocks aligned along primary directions. See example 2 and 3 in how to find directions.

My entrance is located in North direction but it faces east?
Many vastu consultants use door facing direction as parameter in evaluating vastu. However we feel it's the door location which makes a difference rather the door facing direction. These consultants believe door should not face south or should face north. However lets look at example below where door location is in south as per our methodology while it still faces north. (See example) We lay importance to where the door or entrance is located rather that which direction it faces. In modern vastu location of entrance determines layout of other elements of vastu which makes it important.
What about modern equipment?
Vastushastra was developed more than 3000 years ago. People then didn't enjoy modern equipments like fan, AC, chimney, exhaust, coolers, etc. Today we can however get benefits of such equipments. Vastushastra is therefore silent on use and interference of modern equipments. These modern equipments improve living condition in our house. Modern vastushastra may compliments these modern equipments and can help reduce dependence of their use.
How to place heaving objects?
Traditional vastushastra believe in placing heavy objects in particular directions. We feel such objects are beyond context of Vastu Index and operational in nature.
What about other rooms like store rooms, guest rooms, prayer room, study room, etc?
We feel such rooms are not present in houses and not a general parameter. However these rooms can be considered in the context of activities performed. Guestrooms can be considered similar to bedroom. Activities in prayer room and study room can fall context of livingroom.
Combined WC and Bathroom?
Modern attached bathrooms can be considered a WC and a bathroom separately while calculating index.
What about Multi Floor vastu/ Duplex?
Calculate Vastu Index for each floor.
Is Vastushastra valid outside India?
We believe traditional vastushastra was developed observing relevant conditions in India. Its use outside India can be contested. It is left to judgement of vastu owner for any applications of vastushastra outside India.
Any benefits of pyramids/ lamps / water bodies?
These factors may affect local environmental parameters and are operational in nature. Vastu Index is based only on structural parameters.
God / spirituality and Vastushastra?
We believe Vastu Shastra was developed in era when general people would not comprehend terms like air circulation, humidity, magnetic forces, etc. Spirituality was thus used as tool to convince people about vastushastra and its use. It is left to the judgment of Vastu owner whether to believe in spirituality as basis for vastushastra.
