CHENNAI: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa today announced "Amma Marriage Halls" at 11 locations in the state at an estimated cost of Rs 83 crore.

"Poor people have to pay high rents to marriage halls for conducting functions like wedding. Therefore, to benefit them, I have directed constructing 'Amma Marriage Halls'," she said in a statement, apparently hinting that these halls would be let out at lower rentals.

The marriage halls will have all facilities, including air conditioned rooms and kitchens. The scheme will be implemented by Tamil Nadu Housing Board and cooperative housing societies, she said.
