No fine if Sewa bill payment is delayed up to a month

Sewa bills are issued through 4 reading cycles, each of which is assigned to certain areas of the Emirate.

The Sharjah Electricity, Water and Gas Authority (Sewa) 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.

Hamed Taher Al Hajj, Director of the Customer Service Department, indicated that the decision comes in response to the subscribers' demands so that they can pay the bills without fines.

Sewa bills are issued through 4 reading cycles, each of which is assigned to certain areas of the Emirate.

Bills of the first cycle are issued monthly on the 7th day and should be paid without penalty until the 21st of the same month.

The second cycle bills are released monthly on the 14th and can be paid until the first day of the following month.
