KUALA LUMPUR: Bank Islam Malaysia Bhd has received about 10,000 applications for loan repayment extension involving the retail segment from August until yesterday.

Chief executive officer Mohd Muazzam Mohamed also expected the number of applications to continue increasing during the last two weeks of this month.

Towards this end, he urged customers affected by the Covid-19 pandemic to contact the bank immediately and arrange for the best solution as the six months moratorium period will end on Sept 30.

“For now, the application process will only take four working days if the documents are complete. “We are worried that if customers are late, the application process would take a longer time, ” he said.

He said this in a press conference after a ceremony to handover business zakat worth RM40,000 to the National Higher Education Fund Corp (PTPTN) yesterday, which was also attended by PTPTN chief executive Ahmad Dasuki Abdul Majid.

Mohd Muazzam said Bank Islam have also opened 10 branches on two consecutive Saturdays (Sept 12 and 19) to facilitate customers who need repayment/financing assistance post moratorium. — Bernama
