“All Pahang PKZ counters will also be open on Saturday and Sunday for the last two weeks of this year.

“Apart from payment in cash, payers can also make payments using an automatic teller machine (ATM) card or debit card in addition to other online applications provided, ” he said in a media statement here.

He also said that all Pahang PKZs were responsible for receiving cash endowment payments starting this month, with endowments as low as RM5, which could also be transacted online at the portal ewakaf.muip.gov.my.
