SYARIKAT Pantai Supreme System Sdn Bhd has been appointed to carry out medical checks on drivers applying for the goods delivery licences and public service vehicle licences.
Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Azlan Sultan Abu Bakar said the appointment of one company was to curb fraud. He was replying to a question from Datuk Badruddin Amiruldin (BN Jerai) who asked why the company was given the monopoly to handle the health checks.
Tengku Azlan said the Road Transport Department (JPJ) had appointed the company to handle its e-kesihatan system.
Under the system, medical reports for those renewing the licences will be electronically sent to the JPJ.
The company has already placed advertisements for clinics which can conduct health checks to be part of the system, he added.
