PETALING JAYA: There is no need to scan with the MySejahtera app when fuelling up if you make a cashless payment at the pump at petrol stations, says Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
The Defence Minister said this applied to those who made electronic payments at the pump and did not interact with any other person.
“Because they do not have contact with anyone, they do not need to register using the MySejahtera app or manually, ” he said during a press conference on Tuesday (Nov 10).
He said this also applied to those who made cash payments from the outside of the petrol station store as there was a glass sheet to separate payee and cashier.
Ismail Sabri added that those who only inflated their tyres or used the automatic car-wash without making contact with anyone also did not need to register their details.
However, those who patronised the convenience store, surau, toilet, workshop, or other facilities at a petrol station would have to scan the MySejahtera app or register their details.
“When they are inside, they will have interaction with others, such as the cashier or other customers, so it is a must to register, ” he said.
The clarification came following a report that quoted the police as saying that anyone filling their fuel tank at petrol stations would have to scan the MySejahtera app.
This was regardless of whether the individual entered the station’s convenience store or otherwise.
In addition, there was an audio clip of a man circulating in which a man alleged that his father was fined RM1,000 because he did not scan the MySejahtera app when refuelling at a petrol station.
