40 more budget canteens in Chennai from today

The Chennai Corporation today inauguarted 40 more budget canteens across the city. The civic body has opened 39 'Amma Unavagams' so far. The 40 new restaurants will be set up in areas including Thalankkuppam, North Mada Street of Tiruvottiyur, Manali, Vysarpadi, Madhavaram, Old Washermenpet, Pulianthope, Choolai, Gopalapuram, West Mambalam, Neelankarai and Injambakkam.

By 31 March, at least 100 restaurants will be opened. 'Amma Unavagams' in the newly-added areas are expected to cater to those living in slums, daily labourers, drivers, load men and migrant workers.

The decision to set up these centres was announced by the State government in January, after Jayalalithaa gave the go-ahead for the project.

She had also ordered the allocation of 500 metric tonnes of rice to the Chennai Corporation for use in these centres. The canteens are being run by Women Self Help Groups. The women, most of them illiterate, have been trained to manage, cook and clean the canteens. Training for women has been completed and the trial run was carried out already.

The project, which is is aimed at providing cheap and healthy food to people from the lower economic sections, who are unable to cater to their nutrition needs because of their low income, has received plaudits  from the people.
