Selangor residents can apply for the free water scheme of 20 cubic meters per month through the Darul Ehsan Water Scheme effective from today.
The management of Air Selangor Sdn Bhd has shared the process via social media on how to register for the free scheme. In August last year, Selangor Menteri Besar announced that about 100,000 more user accounts would benefit from the scheme with a cost of over RM30 million to be fully borne by the Selangor Government. Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari said as of October 2022, more than 300,000 accounts already enjoy the scheme with registration still open to residents until December 31, 2024.
According to him, the minimum income limit to be eligible to receive the incentive was increased from RM4,000 to RM5,000. Eligibility requirements include applicants must be Malaysian citizens, having individual meter-type residential premises, and only for one account per household.
