Govt extends power bill payment deadline in Yangon

The government said that it will be extending the deadline for the monthly power tariff in Yangon for up to a month as part of measures to avoid unnecessary mass gatherings during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Yangon Electricity Supply Corporation (YESC) has announced it has extended its March electricity bill payment deadline to until May 20. In addition, there will also be no late fees collected as well as no power cuts for those who don’t pay after the original deadline, which is between April 20 and 28.

Those who are able to pay online or through mobile payment apps are encouraged to do so.

After a long Thingyan holiday, the government departments have reopened on April 20, including the YESC.

Videos of crowds of people queuing in front of YESC offices have been circulating on Facebook, resulting in concerns of mass gatherings and risks of the virus spreading further.

A total of 111 people have tested positive in Myanmar since March 23. Yangon Region has the highest number of infected patients in the country as of April 18 with 91 positive cases.
