Customers of Amma Unavagam in the city have demanded sign boards at various locations to guide the public to these canteens.
Except for the canteens functioning in important locations, the other ones are difficult to locate, they said.
“I searched for an hour to locate ‘Amma Unavagam’ at Bagayam,” said Muthukumaran, a construction labourer in Kosapet.
Marketing professionals, sales representatives, vendors and labourers should be guided to the nearest ‘Amma Unavagam’. This requires installation of sign boards, said Vasanth, who sells kitchenware.
More than 250 customers are seen the low budget canteens at important places such as Anna Salai and the beedi workers quarters in Sathuvachari. These canteens were seen busy with customers from day one, while some canteens saw less than 150 customers and were closed an hour before the actual time (3.00 pm).
The local body has allotted Rs 4.90 lakh from the general fund of the Corporation for the year 2013-2014, for manufacturing and installing sign boards for ‘Amma Unavagams’.
A resolution in this regard was also passed at the recently held Corporation council meeting.
