BR1M 2.0 registration to close on March 15
PUTRAJAYA: Registration for the 1Malaysia People’s Assistance Scheme 2.0 will end on March 15, 2013, said Second Finance Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah today.
“We are giving another month to allow those who have not registered, to do so. The government’s philosophy in the context of the BR1M is to ensure that all eligible Malaysians receive the BR1M,” he told reporters after delivering his keynote address at the Inaugural Treasury Economic Forum 2013 here.
Ahmad Husni said 7.3 million applications or almost all the eligible recipients have already registered.
However, he said, the Inland Revenue Board while in the process of determining whether an individual was eligible for the assistance, found that there were those who had applied twice.
“We will set aside one application and only one will be processed,” he said. — BERNAMA
