Electricity and water subsidies cover a number of categories for those whose total family salaries are less than 2,250 which are as follows:
-If the monthly family income is less than OMR 500, regardless of the number of family members.
-If the family income is OMR750 or less and the number of family members is five or more.
- If the income is OMR1000 or less and the number of members is seven or more.
- If the income is OMR1250 and the number of members is nine or more.
