Briefings on e-wallet initiative

SEGAMAT: The Jementah Community Service Centre will be conducting a series of briefings on the government’s e-Tunai Rakyat initiative later this month.

Jementah assemblyman Tan Chen Choon said the first series would be held on Jan 17 and Jan 18 at Nam Yuen Kopitiam along Jalan Dato’ Syed Abdul Kadir between 8am and 4pm.

The second series would be held on Jan 19, Jan 20 and Jan 21 at Segamat Municipal Council between 8am and 4pm.

“This programme will help local community within Segamat as they will have a better understanding and able to get benefit from such initiative as announced by Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng during the tabling of Budget 2020 last year,” he said in a statement.

Tan, who is also Johor local government, urban wellbeing and environment committee chairman, added Touch n Go (TnG) would also be having a digital trade registration counter for its e-wallet product.

“Local businesses should grab this opportunity to digitalise their business transactions to become cashless, which is much more easier,” he added.

He called on the people in Segamat to attend the programme to have a better insight into the cashless system, which is a proactive initiative from the government.

Under the initiative, Malaysians aged 18 years and above and earning less than RM100,000 annually will be eligible to receive RM30 through any of the participating e-wallets.

The RM30 can then be used to purchase goods and services available on the e-wallet of their choice. The initiative will run for two months from Jan 15 to March 14.
