Kelab Vendor Perodua and Proton Vendors Association urges the government to go ahead immediately with plans to offer a voluntary scrapping scheme for motor vehicles more than 15 years old in return for RM5,000 rebates when buying new national cars.

They are of the opinion that the scheme will have a positive spin-off effect on the industry in the following by increasing demand of parts and components, helping bring down costs as well as improve quality and delivery.

Also proposed is the voluntary export of old used national cars with rebate on excise duties paid to help generate sales for new cars as well as clear excess stock of used cars that are piling up in the country right now.
