“This measure is expected to help 13.9 million holders of state welfare cards nationwide, or approximately 8 million households. However, each household is entitled to the subsidy each month on one power bill and one water bill only,” she said.
Electricity fees are being waived for households that use less than 50 units per month. If it’s over 50 units, the state welfare card covers up to Bt230 of the bill per household. Any exceeding amount has to be paid by households.
The state welfare card also covers Bt100 of tap water bills per household per month.
