The subsidy, being implemented by Oman Fuel Committee comprising Oman Oil Marketing Company, Al Maha Petroleum Products Marketing Company and Shell Oman Marketing Company, is aimed at mitigating consequences of the liberalisation of fuel prices. The subsidy system is applicable to all citizens who meet the criteria set by the government, including being above 18 years of age, owning a vehicle/ boat and earning a monthly income not more than RO 600. The subsidy is only for M91 fuel. Those who meet the criteria can get 200 litres of subsidised fuel every month at 180 baisas per litre. The fuel card utilisation date has been set for January 1, 2018. Many citizens were happy with the fuel subsidy decision.
