To ensure quality and affordable drinking water to the poor and middle class people, the Tamil Nadu government is set to launch nine ‘Amma Mineral Water’ production units across the state that would offer one litre bottle priced at Rs 10.
These units, to be established by the state transport corporations, would make available one litre of mineral water packed in bottles at Rs 10 each, ensuring safe water and reducing to some extent the financial burden of the people, Chief Minister J Jayalalitha said in a statement here.
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa today announced that the State Transport corporations will set up mineral water plants and sell bottled water at Rs10 per litre.
CM K Jayalalithaa has issued a statement noting “In order to provide safe drinking water at cheap rates on behalf of state transport corporations, Amma Mineral Water plants will be set up state wide. The first plant will be set up at Gummundipoondi on the outskirts of the state capital with a capacity of three lakh litres per day.
This plant is expected to start operations on September 15, on the occasion of AIADMK legend and late Chief Minister C N Annadurai’s birth anniversary
These bottled water will be sold in long-distance buses and at bus stands.
