Dear Rawal Saheb, I agree with you that the word अवरी does not find mention in the Hindi dictionary. And as you have mentioned the word अवारी means exactly as you have written. Now, since awari is under discussion, and a word तूतक related with shipping was asked in the previous discussion by the same asker, I have presumed the word awari to be related with ship's structure. And hence, although you are correct in providing meaning for अवारी, I feel the word अवर, which means INFERIOR or LOWER usually placed as an adjective before the word DECK is what is referred to. Sometimes, the Lower Deck is just referred to as अवरी by native sailors. Nevertheless, the asker, Ms Marta Mendonça can help us in resolving this issue by telling us in which context the word has been used.

Explanation: The word is not "AWARI" - rather It is an adjective mainly used before deck; e.g. Avar Deck - meaning Lower Deck. Hence, "AWAR" means "Lower".
The awar desk was crowded. = अवर डेक पर भारी भीड़ थी।
