Can’t pay your Sharjah water, electricity bill? There’s good news


DUBAI – Sharjah residents who are unable to pay their water and electricity bills can avail of an extended payment period, the Sharjah Electricity, Water and Gas Authority (SEWGA) announced on Wednesday (April 14).

Sharjah residents with utility bills amounting to Dh1,000 or less will be given a 30-day grace period staring from the date of the billing.

Those whose bills exceed Dh1,000 will have a 15-day grace period. Previously, the payment period was only seven days.

Hamed Taher Al Haj, director of the Customer Service Department, said the decision is in response to residents’ request for payment extension to avoid fines.

A bill of Dh1,000 or less can be paid without a penalty within a month from the date of billing, otherwise a fine of Dh25 will apply.

No fine will be imposed in case the balance is Dh300 or less. ICA/Expat Media
