Five UTCs to be opened till 10pm from Jan 22


PETALING JAYA: Five Urban Transformation Centres (UTCs) will be opened till 10pm from Jan 22.

A statement from the Finance Ministry said the centres were those located in shopping malls in Shah Alam, Keramat and Seremban. The other three are in Alor Setar, Johor Baru, Kota Baru and Kuala Terengganu.

However, operating hours will be 8am until 5pm on weekends for Shah Alam, Keramat and Seremban, and on Friday and Saturday for Alor Setar, Johor Baru, Kota Baru and Kuala Terengganu.

Previously, it was decided that all UTCs – which is a one-stop centre housing all the important government agencies such as Immigration, Road Transport Department and National Registration Department – would open from 8am until 7pm.

It said the decision to extend the opening hours until 10pm was due to public feedback asking for the operations at selected locations to be extended, adding that the UTCs would continue to operate seven days a week, except for public holidays.
