Diesel DMAX

The government has opened a Request for Proposal to all quarters for suggestions on how to implement a more suitable diesel subsidy scheme that is more effective in preventing abuse and wastage, according to Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Shahrir Abdul Samad.

The government will then announce the new subsidy plan in about 6 weeks time, with implementation to take effect in 6 months time. It seems that if the newly implemented diesel subsidy plan is found to work well, a similiar one will be cooked up for petrol subsidies as well, so both users of petrol and diesel vehicles should brace for some big changes in the next few months up to the next 2 years.

Any good ideas?
