Oman’s Majlis Al Shura has dismissed claims they are responsible for requesting higher fees for water connections to new homes

“The Shura Council states that it did not call for the increase of fees and did not submit it as a proposal or a recommendation. The Council confirms in all its works to not affect the standards of living of the citizens.” - Shura Council

Earlier this week, Diam had said that new homeowners who wished to connect to their homes will have to pay at least OMR 700.

The fee was for connecting drinking water services to residential lands with an area of less than 2,000 sqm and would increase depending on the size of the land.
