PENGURUSAN Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Air Selangor) is ramping up efforts to encourage people to register for its e-billing through the “Jom e-Bil Air Selangor” carnival.

Account holders are advised to switch from paper bills to e-billing as it is fast and easy and they can pay their water bills seamlessly online.

Air Selangor chief executive officer Suhaimi Kamaralzaman said there were 2.4 million account holders registered under Air Selangor.

They are targeting about 600,000 account holders to register as e-billing users until April 30.

“Our e-billing service was introduced in January 2018 and we are now reaching 400,000 registered e-billing users.

“We are hoping to get 200,000 more customers to increase awareness on the convenience of e-billing, ” he said during the campaign held at The Curve in Mutiara Damansara, Petaling Jaya.

Suhaimi added that the Inland Revenue Board was in charge of the 200,000 registered applications for Skim Air Darul Ehsan.

“Those who earn a monthly income below RM4,000 were eligible to register for this benefit before Dec 31 last year.

“We may not be able to guarantee the number of eligible families but we are optimistic that those who registered can enjoy the free water scheme starting March 1, ” he said.

Suhaimi said the proposal for Air Selangor to merge with Indah Water Konsortium Sdn Bhd (IWK) was expected to be finalised by the end of this year.

However, he said, it would take at least five years to implement this proposal if it is accepted.

Activities carried out during the carnival included balloon making with clowns, a virtual reality chair Tru Viu experience and special appearance by local celebrities Alif Satar and Nana Mahazan.

Alif said he was proud to be a part of Air Selangor to encourage the public to practice a greener lifestyle.

“This is a good initiative carried out by Air Selangor as e-billing was not only convenient for users but also good for the environment, ” he said.

Air Selangor had organised the “Find, Register and Win” contest where account holders were encouraged to persuade other customers to register for e-billing and those who succeeded could stand a chance to win a grand prize holiday trip to London or Paris and 30 other prizes including Samsung S10 smartphones and Aeon vouchers worth RM500.

Lucky draw prizes are up for grabs for all registered customers such as up to RM10 water bill rebate for 100 lucky e-bill customers for 10 consecutive months as well as a Perodua Myvi 1.5 Auto.
