SHAH ALAM: The Education Ministry has agreed with the Transport Ministry to sell special number plates to alumni of public universities, says Dr Maszlee Malik.

The Education Minister said this would be a form of additional funding for the universities.

“Through a JPJ collaboration with the universities, we will try to issue and sell number plates. For example, as a graduate of UM (Universiti Malaya), I want a number plate UM1000, or UM2322.

“So we will pay JPJ, while half goes to the university,” he said on Thursday (July 19) during a question-and-answer session on education that was organised by the Karangkraf Media Group.

He also urged the alumni to support their own universities.

“If the graduates and alumni don’t help your alma maters, who else will?” he said.

Dr Maszlee said he had guaranteed the universities that their funding would not be cut, but at the same time, there will be no guarantees of additional funding for them.
