Government conducting public survey on targeted subsidies – RON 95 implementation in 2H 2024

Government conducting public survey on targeted subsidies – RON 95 implementation in 2H 2024

The government is currently conducting a survey regarding the retargeting of aid and subsidies from now until December 31, 2023. Open to the public (access it here), the survey is being conducted by the ministry of domestic trade and costs of living (KPDN), with the views of the rakyat being taken into consideration before targeted subsidies are introduced.

Through the survey, the government hopes to gain a better overview of how well Malaysians understand the implementation of targeted subsidies, identify practical methods of providing aid and subsidies that Malaysians would prefer as well as any other input or views from the people.

Whether you’re in support of targeted subsidies or not, fill up the survey to let the government know your thoughts on the matter. Come 2024, the government plans to introduce a targeted subsidy mechanism for RON95 petrol in the second half of the year.

This move is in line with its effort to optimise resources while reducing leakages and wastage. Aside from petrol, targeted subsidies will also affect diesel, which will be introduce in phases. Economy minister Rafizi Ramli has said that the Pangkalan Data Utama (PADU) socio-economic database would be a crucial component in allowing the government to rationalise its subsidies and implement social welfare reforms. As of October, the PADU database was 72% complete.

    Buat macam TNB lah… subsidi berdasarkan penggunaan. Contoh, setiap orang diberi 100 litre petrol subsidi, lebih daripada itu, bayar full price. So everyone gets the subsidi up to your quota or B40 get unlimited subsidi to re-sell petrol?

    • Petrol Card 500 Litres on Dec 04, 2023 at 5:02 pm

      Yup better use petrol card for every car owners but with quota limit 500 liters per month (diesel or petrol cars) on subsidised price.

      500 liters shoould be enough for average car user 2000-3000km per month travel.

      Above excess that limit then pay full market price RM5.00 per liter. Very simple easy solution using only petrol card.

        They lied, they never ask rakyat. Basically we want this whole idea buried and for PH to fulfill their promise of RM 1.50 petrol. That is so simple and that is all what rakyat wants. Just give what we want!

    The biggest loop hole is how government define household income whether they are affluent or low income group. A non-working housewife can help his T20 husband to refill at the petrol station if the wife is declared as non-working and eligible to get the subsidy.
    The recent eMadani RM100 distribution already expose the weakness in the government’s database.

    won’t make any difference, T20 will always force to pay for B40.

    Why conduct survey when you r 72% into PADU ?
    U should survey first,then get your PADU dudes to streamline/focus on core issues to get your required data.
    At the rate things r progressing,from first quarter to second quarter n now survey lagi..rakyat beginning to feel there will be further delays,n dont give a damn.
    The goalposts keep shifting…just pathetic.
