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 “Amma Salt”, a product of Tamil Nadu Salt Corporation (TNSC) under the State Industries Department, according to an advertisement released by the government on Tuesday.

The salt would be available in three varieties — double fortified, refined free flow iodised and low sodium, they said. However, the details of pricing is not known yet.

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