Water Tariff in Malaysia

Sadly, water tariff will be reviewed and most probably will be increasing in 2019. In the beginning of January 2019, Water, Land and Natural Resources Minister Dr Xavier Jayakumar hinted water tariff will be increased. The reason given was to protect the consumer’s interest in getting good water quality and ensuring the industry’s services.

Despite his guaranteed will not burden the people, but when we look at the current economy crisis, it does not seems to be a good time to talk about this.

Before the new tariff announce, we have compile a list of  water tariff for residential (individual meter) title for all States in Malaysia.
