GUYANA Water Incorporated (GWI) wishes to respond to the first question raised by Mr Mohamed Azad in his letter to the Editor on Monday, January 11, 2021, titled: “When will pensioners start getting their free water?”
In that correspondence, he asks: “When will pensioners start getting the 10 cubic metre free water?”
The utility wishes to inform the general public that we have credited to each pensioner with a registered GWI account, the sum of GYD$2,960, representing pension subsidies for the period October – December 2020 and January 2021.
Further, on the first working day of each remaining month of 2021, we will credit to each registered pensioner the sum of $740, representing the pension subsidy for that month. The credit already given, and those to come, will be reflected on the bill received by the pensioner as “PAYMENT MADE SINCE LAST BILL.”
If any member of the public has any further questions regarding the water subsidy for pensioners, please feel free to contact any of GWI’s regional offices or our Customer Call Centre on 227-8701.
