  • Under this program, the defaulters who pay the principal amount will not be charged a surcharge or interest on their electricity bill. Under the "Electricity Surcharge Waiver Scheme 2022", the defaulting customers can pay their amount in three installments along with their monthly bills. They will also receive an additional 5% reduction if they pay the entire amount together.
  • This program is applicable to both domestic connections and government departments that haven't done so as of late December. The fee will be eliminated if the defaulters routinely pay their amount over the course of the year. But they will be required to pay the total balance due if they default once more.
