As per a government proposal, schools that use water and electricity within a certain limit will be exempt from paying bills in the next fiscal year (March 2020-21), the energy minister said Wednesday.
“If the proposal is approved by Majlis, (despite the Energy Ministry’s strong opposition) schools will not be charged for power and water unless they exceed a certain level,” Reza Ardakanian was quoted as saying by ILNA.
“In our view it is a wrong policy to provide education institutions free electricity and water. But we must respect the decision of the parliament,” he said.
