Star Online reported Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said on Monday the decision to cancel the SKIN concession was to make way for the development of a new system that is comprehensive, effective and user friendly.
"We also want to develop a system that is value for money and that can save government funds," he announced at the Immigration Day celebration on Monday.
Muhyiddin said the project would be given a priority given the urgent need to improve the departments system.
StarBiz recently reported the SKIN concession was one of the 44 projects done under a public-private partnership (PPP) model, where the private sector funds it and recoups the payment from the government in stages.
Towards this end, the Finance Ministry had previously stated that the PPP project would not be cancelled but reviewed for it to be implemented in a different model.
In its existing form, SKIN is a 15-year concession project which officially started on April 25 this year.
