After Amma water, Jaya to launch Amma salt

June 10, 2014 18:31 IST

After low-cost canteens and drinking water, the Jayalalithaa government in Tamil Nadu is launching Amma Salt on Wednesday. 

Chief Minister Jayalalithaa will inaugurate the sale of the Amma Salt, a product of Tamil Nadu Salt Corporation Limited under the State Industries Department, according to an advertisement released by the government on Tuesday.

The salt will be available in three varieities -- double fortified, refined free flow iodised and low sodium, they said. However, the details related to pricing are not known. This is the latest in the series of welfare initiatives named after Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, who is addressed as Amma (mother) by her supporters.

Earlier, the government had launched Amma canteens, offering tiffin and lunch at low cost and Amma Water, packaged drinking water costing Rs 10 per one litre bottle.

TNSC is a fully owned enterprise of the state government, which on Tuesday released advertisements in media about the launch of salt.
