PETALING JAYA: The Road Transport Department's (JPJ) decision to set the mandatory medical examination fee for e-hailing drivers at RM80 is not warranted as many clinics charge only RM20, says the Malaysia E-Hailing Drivers Association (Mehda).

Its president Daryl Chong said despite JPJ's best intention to prevent overcharging, the association has already secured a low rate of RM20 to ease the burden of e-hailing drivers.
