The decision comes in implementation of the kind directives of His Highness Dr. Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah.
The Sharjah Water and Electricity Authority (Sewa) is committed to offering world-class services to Sharjah residents and achieve the sustainable development goals, said Chairman Dr Rashid Al Leem. He also emphasised that during the unprecedented lockdown, Sewa employees continued to work around the clock to ensure customers were provided with all critically needed services.
Sewa has announced extending paying bills without penalties for one month in case the bill value is less than Dhs1,000 and for 15 days in case the bill value is more than Dhs1,000, instead of 7 days.
The Sewa has announced the reduction of the completion rate required to submit the approval files for the electrical executive plans for the new buildings (Shop Drawing) to 60 per cent instead of 75 per cent.
The move is in line with the precautionary measures taken by the government and aimed at facilitating the customers amid the challenges posed by the spread of the coronavirus, COVID-19.
