A bill seeking to cut off further subsidies for Expats will come up for voting in the next regular session of Bahrain’s Parliament, it has emerged.

If the bill becomes law will impose a fee not exceeding “10 per cent of water consumption charges” on non-Bahraini consumers.

Parliamentarians are of the view that the move would help relieve some pressure off the government expenses, as the service now is 100pc subsidised.

Bahraini domestic sector, however, will be excluded from “paying the fees”.

The amendment proposes fees for using sanitary networks, monthly sewerage discharges, wastewater treatment and using treated water. (Source credit – DT News)
