KOTA KINABALU: The delay in the distribution of RM600 cash aid to school bus operators in Sabah was due to errors made by the applicants when filling up forms.
Sabah Commercial Vehicle Licensing Board (CVLB) chairman Datuk Chin Kim Hiung (pic) said that the delay in the disbursement of the RM600 cash aid was due to incomplete details and errors in filling the online application form.
He said that school bus operators were provided a link to fill the application form online themselves.
However, due to the errors and incomplete details, he said CVLB officers took the time to assist applicants in updating the forms, before submitting them to the relevant authorities to be processed.
“Sabah School Bus Operators Association chairman Lee Man Keong took the initiative to contact me to enquire about the delay almost two weeks ago and I had clarified the matter with him, ” Chin said.
He said unfortunately, he was informed by his officers that nobody had contacted the Sabah CVLB office in Kota Kinabalu to ask about the status of their applications.
“Rest assured, we are currently waiting for the funds to be channelled to us for distribution to all eligible applicants and the delay is due to errors in filling the form online, ” he said.
CVLB would have provided the explanation to the applicants if they had called to make enquiries without having to go through a third party, he added.
Chin invited applicants to contact either him or his officers if they required further clarification.
The association or committee members can come forward to meet him to obtain accurate information on the matter, he added.
