Electricity and water bills in Sharjah reduced for three months

All Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority (SEWA) bills are set to be reduced for three months, it has been announced.

HH Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah has said SEWA bills will be reduced by ten percent.

The move is in line with the precautionary measures taken by the government to help customers affected by the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

The reduction is set to cost the government more than Dhs230 million.

Dubai also announced a 10 percent discount on electricity and water bills earlier this month.

Earlier this week, Sharjah City Municipality announced that public parking would be free until further notice.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, all shopping malls, markets and restaurants are closed.

Restaurants can continue to operate as takeaway or delivery only outlets, and grocery shops, pharmacies and clinics are exempt from the closures.
