Kula: Only 7% of taxi, e-hailing drivers pay for Socso even though cigarettes cost more


KUALA LUMPUR: The uptake of the Social Security Organisation (Socso) scheme for taxi and e-hailing drivers has been slow as only 7%, or 7,000 out of 100,000 drivers, are currently covered, said M. Kulasegaran.

The Human Resources Minister said that his Ministry is currently in the final stages of discussions with the Transport Ministry on a mechanism to disable drivers from renewing their licence if they do not contribute towards Socso.
