Consumers in Kelantan owe AKSB RM28.5mil in arrears

KOTA BARU: Consumers in Kelantan owe Syarikat Air Kelantan Sdn Bhd (AKSB) RM28.5mil in unpaid water bills, as of Sept 30, the state legislative assembly was told on Wednesday (Nov 30).

State Works, Infrastructure, Transport and Utilities Committee chairman Datuk Azami Mohd Nor said of the amount, RM18.4mil was current debt owed by domestic consumers.

"As of Sept 30, consumers still owe the company a total of RM28,543,688. This is an improvement from the RM33,212,268 owed at the end of 2021 (Dec 31, 2021),” he said when replying to a question from Datuk Mohd Adhan Kechik (BN-Bukit Bunga).

In order to increase the collection, he said AKSB had carried out collection enforcement activities continuously throughout the districts, especially areas that do not have clean water supply problems this year and provided various collection mediums including through banks and collection agents.

Replying to a question from Hilmi Abdullah (PAS-Guchil) on free water supply to the asnaf group, Azami said the state government always helps people in need.

"We have 30 lorries that distributed free water supply to asnaf in all areas from April 2020 until July this year at a cost of RM11.5mil and this is one of our social responsibilities," he added. - Bernama
