Shocking

Some hefty leccy bills coming to Abu Dhabi this month

If your rent is 150k, your ADWEA bill is going to be AED 4,500 plus this month

Sneaky stealth tax. Backdating is bad form. Especially straight after Xmas.

Why another nail in the coffin?

It's lower than Dubai's housing fee and wasn't it announced earlier last year?

Charging people 3% of annual rent backdated for a year in their next utility bill is a bit off
