Chennai: Chief Minister M K Stalin launched the commercial sale of ‘Neythal Uppu,’ the State government own brand of iodized salt in both granular and fine power forms, in the open market, besides announcing an annual relief of Rs 5,000 for salt pan workers.

Since salt pan workers normally suffer during the months of October to December every year due to non-production of salt, the government has come up with the scheme to pay them an assistance of Rs 5,000 to enable them tide over the financial crisis they face due to lack of work.

Launching the scheme that would benefit thousands of salt pan workers at the Secretariat on Friday, Stalin handed over cheques for the assistance to five beneficiaries.
