KUWAIT CITY, Dec 09: “After the implementation of the fifth phase of the plan for return to normalcy, the Ministry of Electricity and Water will immediately start sending notices to landlords of private houses to pay their electricity and water bills. Failure in complying to do so will lead to disconnection of water service”, reports Al-Rai daily quoting informed sources from the Ministry of Electricity and Water as saying.
They went on to explain, “The ministry will continue to send notices to all other sectors to pay their dues. In the event of delay in payment, the ministry will cut off the power to the violating real estate.”
The sources affirmed that the ministry is also committed to sending notices to citizens who are behind in settling their previous bills, adding that this move is based on the request of the State Audit Bureau, which stressed the need to collect the ministry’s dues, especially from private housing owners who pledged to pay by signing debt declarations.
They indicated that the movement of debt collections increased from the beginning of the last quarter of this year, adding that they are expecting the collection process to increase significantly at the end of the year after a period of inactivity due to the conditions of the COVID-19 crisis.
