KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysians studying overseas and part-time students at higher learning institutions will soon be able to enjoy the benefit of the 1Malaysia Student Discount Card (KADS1M).
"At the moment, in the first phase of our programme, only full-time students at private and public higher learning institutions will enjoy the benefit of up to 60% discounts at various retail outlets and shops around the country.
"However, after receiving positive feedback, the ministry is considering to extend the scope to include overseas, distance-learning and part-time students.
"This is because the Federal Government is trying to help reduce the daily cost of living for our students," said Deputy Domestic Trade, Co-operative and Consumerism Minister Datuk Rohani Abdul Karim to a supplementary question by Datuk Mohamad Aziz (BN-Sri Gading).
Mohamad Aziz had asked whether the Government intended to extend the benefits of KADS1M to overseas and part-time students.
Rohani added that 927,397 cards have been distributed and students who had applied could collect their card by the end of the month.
