Gov’t looking into ID system for targeted fuel subsidy

Gov’t looking into ID system for targeted fuel subsidy

The ministry of domestic trade and cost of living (KPDN) says it is discussing the use of a special identification system as part of its targeted subsidy mechanism for diesel and RON 95 petrol, the New Straits Times reports.

According to KPDN deputy minister Senator Fuziah Salleh, this would be in line with the planned launch of the Pangkalan Data Utama (PADU) socio-economic database, which is set to be completed by the end of the year.

She said that prior to this, ministries would have to utilise different databases, but PADU would streamline things. In the case of targeted fuel subsidies, for example, the data would come from the inland revenue board (LHDN) and the road transport department (JPJ).

“After accumulating data from these two agencies, only then can we identify who qualifies for the subsidy. To gather all this data, the main authority will lie with PADU, which will work with the statistics department to update and streamline the info,” she said.

Gov’t looking into ID system for targeted fuel subsidy

In May, economy minister Rafizi Ramli said the government would begin collecting household net disposable income metrics, using them as a structuring measure to ensure that targeted subsidies are more accurately distributed. These metrics will be integrated with PADU, which will combine the socio-economic information for every household in the country.

Last month, prime minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said that while the government was in the midst of formulating its proposed targeted subsidy mechanism, it would be a while before it is announced. He said this was because of the complexity involved and getting the parameters right to ensure subsidies are delivered to the right parties.

Previously, it was reported that the government would begin its targeted fuel subsidy with diesel from next year and would monitor its effectiveness, along with that of a targeted subsidy for electricity, before announcing any decision on a targeted subsidy for RON 95.

    Been talking about that since the last Pakatan gomen, until today still talking about it. If no end in sight, pls dun make preannouncements and spook the people, the business, and causing spikes in goods & food prices whenever they mention it.

    As again janji was petrol to be cheaper for everyone but reality now petrol will be more expensive for everyone.

          is it? Majority of PH voters are M40 & T20 and now they are suffering the most while having to subsidise B40.
          This does not make any sense. At least back in BN days, BN prioritise B40 that voted for them (previously).

            What determines the winner of a constituency in an election are the actual votes cast in the ballot boxes, not just mere speculation due to some demographics. That’s why it is possible for an incumbent who had been victorious in the same constituency during the past several elections, to lose in the next future election. And what is published in the media after the elections is of course not confidential government information, because they didn’t say which citizen actually voted for which candidate.

        Najwan, grow up la kid. Why padan muka to all PH supporters? Subsidised petrol is not everything. If Petrol is still subsidised the country will go rot, already we’re 1.5 trillion in debt. PMX is doing a great job stabilizing the country attracting lots of investments that increase the economy of this country from debt hugely caused by BN era and Muhyiddin. Muhyiddin misused rm600b which is more worse than what you think PH is doing bad and he’s going to implement to reduce petrol subsidy as well. Boleh search Google la kalau xpecaya. You’re just blind and cannot see the good things he’s doing. You want cheap petrol cheap this cheap that. Just grow up la, you’re an embarrassment PH hater. PN is more corrupted. Cutting petrol subsidy saves a lot of govt money which Singaporeans are also stealing. It helps reducing country expenditure.

        However, like the rest of us, politicians are also not 100% perfect. That’s why, through the democratic process, you can choose to vote out a politician if you think he/she didn’t do a satisfactory job. However, do note that as much as you may not like a certain politician, his/her political rivals might be even worse.

      Always want this want that ingat this thing can go on for long? Already the country has a lot of debt, need to cut some subsidy, and for me I’m okay with this as long other subsidy like tong gas, rice, oil still ada. Already Singaporeans stealing our subsidised petrol which takes a lot of country money. Yes the petrol price increase goods prices oso increase and I’m okay with it. I’m NOT RICH af I’m just Border B40 level la and I understand the situation. You just grow up and accept that rm1.50 petrol is not possible to be set and you’re definitely a PH hater. Yes they did not menunaikan janji and I understand the situation. And I’m also ok with the return of GST 6% as it gives more revenue for the country to invest to increase GDP and welfare for the people.
