Idli Amma, original name Kamalathal went viral in 2019 for selling the cheapest idlis for over 30 years. Not caring about her profits, Amma extended her services keeping in mind those in need. The octogenarian has been running her business from a tiny shanty shop.
Her thoughtful mindset moved the Mahindra Group chairman at that time and had shared a video of her to extend help for her significant contribution to society.
After knowing her priority was a new home cum workspace, Mahindra sent his team to Amma’s place and registered land in her name.
“Mr Pungal from Mahindra came to my hut. It was too congested. I requested him for a new house for me. He promised to check and get back to me,” Idli AMma said.
Later, Mahindra’s team went to the registrar’s office at Thondamuthur in Tamil Nadu and purchased land for Idli Amma as per her requirements.
“Grateful to the Registration Office at Thondamuthur for helping us achieve our 1st milestone by speedily registering the land,” Anand Mahindra wrote on Twitter while sharing images of the elderly woman along with officials.
