While the board of FENAKA had decided to stop taking the meter charge of MVR 30 in January 2020, the decision was not executed due to the approvals required from Finance Ministry and other government institutions not being approved.
The governments decision has been announced today while the matter had been addressed several times by the people of Addu City before. Speaking on the matter, Addu City Mayor, Abdulla Sodiq has said that it did not make any sense for FENAKA to charge people even though they did not use the supply water and for the water meter being just there at their home. He also had said that companies should have discussed with the city council before taking such decisions.
