RM20 incentive for visitors at Rahmah bazaars


KUANTAN: Visitors to Rahmah Ramadan Bazaars stand a chance of receiving a RM20 incentive through ewallet platforms involving a total allocation of about RM2mil, says Deputy Domestic Trade and Living Costs Minister Fuziah Salleh.

This incentive, she said, would be given to the first 1,000 visitors at selected bazaars through operators or providers of ewallet platforms working in collaboration with the ministry.

“In each state, it will be implemented six times, which means that 6,000 visitors will benefit from this initiative. But each person is entitled to the incentive only once.

“Apart from helping to reduce the cost of living, the move is to educate and get the community to shop with ewallets to make way for a cashless society,” she was quoted by Bernama as saying after a programme in conjunction with Ramadan at the farmer’s market here yesterday.

Fuziah said so far, 29 bazaars had registered for the Rahmah Ramadan Bazaar programme, adding that the ministry was targeting this to be held at 50 locations nationwide.

She also reminded Ramadan bazaar traders to display their food prices at all times to avoid violating the Price Control and Anti-Profiteering Act 2011.

Pahang Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority (Fama) director Saiful Sadri said it was targeting sales of over RM3mil through its Madani Ramadan Sales Programme which would be held throughout the fasting month at 18 locations in Pahang.
