Confusing: Mohd Noor showing the discrepancy between his driving licence and MyKad. The driving licence states 46150 Petaling Jaya while the MyKad shows his address as 46150 Subang Jaya.
A NOTICE from Pos Malaysia that there will be a change in the postcode of PJS 7, 9 and 11 has residents worried that this may lead to a host of problems, including non or late delivery of mail.

Hannah Yeoh said Pos Malaysia should give an assurance that the delivery of mail would not be interrupted.

PJS 9 Rukun Tetangga deputy chairman Mohd Noor Ahmad wanted confirmation on whether they would have to replace documents such as their driver’s licence.
“Do we have to inform the relevant authorities on the new postcode or will this be handled by Pos Malaysia?” he asked.
Residents were never informed of the reasons for the change, pointed out PJS 9 Rukun Tetangga chairman Goh Hai Thun.
“PJS stands for Petaling Jaya Selatan so I do not understand why there is a need to change it. Even our land title is under the Petaling district,” he said.
The redrawing of constituency boundaries needs to be explained clearly to residents, said Yeoh.
“Postcodes indicating areas that are different from councils and state assemblies governing them are confusing for residents as they are unsure about where to go.”
Government officials, especially local councils, would also face problems performing their duties, she added.
