At that time Mahindra stated that he will be happy to invest in her business. Mahindra also got to know that Idli Amma's priority was getting a new house cum workspace. 

Later in April 2021, Mahindra's team registered land for Idli Amma's new workspace in Thondamuthur and construction began. Construction was completed just in time for Mother's Day 2022 and the house was handed over to Idli Amma.
