All Singapore Stuff scaring Singaporeans into believing our Government is trying to squeeze Singaporeans dry by increasing the water prices amidst economic uncertainty!

They will be receiving U-Save rebates of up to $380 for the year, an increase of $120 from $260. Three-room flat households will get an increase of $100 in U-Save rebates, four-room flats an increase of $80 and five-room flats $60.
Executive and multi-generational flat households will get $40 more. These increases are permanent and will cost an additional $71 million a year. About 880,000 HDB households will benefit.
