Muscat, The National Fuel Subsidy System called all registrants who received text messages related to data confirmation to update their data to ensure that they continue to benefit of the subsidy. The deadline for updating the data will be the day after tomorrow.

The Council of Ministers had issued a decision to expand the base of eligible categories in the National Fuel Subsidy System during July 2018 to include all citizens whose total monthly income up to a maximum of RO950. The current regulations, which were announced earlier, will remain the same. The applicants will be contacted for receipt of their cards so that they can use them immediately after receipt.

Applicants can register for the subsidy through the website of the system www.nss.gov.om and follow the registration steps by filling out the fields. They are then required to receive their fuel subsidy card from their favorite fuel station. They can then activate these cards by following easy and clear steps or follow the explanations available on the website or on the official Twitter account of the subsidy system.

A communications center was set up from 8 am to 5 pm during the weekdays to receive all queries related to the National Fuel Subsidy System, the approved subsidy mechanism and the system registration process.

The system also calls on registered citizens to confirm their data through the system periodically every three months from the date of the first activation of the national subsidy card to that the data included in the system are correct and have not been changed. This will ensure that the subsidy reaches the targeted group.
