India: The state government of Tamil Nadu has scaled down its support for the Amma Cement Supply Scheme. Sales data shows that the scheme failed to meet its targets in 2015 – 2016 and 2016 – 2017, according to the Hindu newspaper. Its highest level of sales was 52% of procurement in August 2016. The subsidised cement scheme was launched by former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa in 2014 to help lower and middle income groups purchase cement at subsidised prices.
