RM20 ewallet incentive for first 6,000 Rahmah Ramadan bazaar visitors in KL

KUALA LUMPUR: The Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Ministry is expanding the Retail Sector Digitisation Initiative (ReDI) through the provision of RM20 ewallet incentive to the first 6,000 consumers or traders at the Rahmah Ramadan bazaars here during the month of Ramadan.

Its Deputy Minister Fuziah Salleh said they have allocated RM2mil for the incentive as an approach to encourage consumers and traders to conduct digital transactions at the bazaars throughout the country, including Kuala Lumpur.

"Visitors who wish to redeem the RM20 need only scan the QR code at the prepared kiosks there. We want to encourage ewallet use,” she said during a walkabout at a Rahmah Ramadan bazaar at Lorong Tuanku Abdul Rahman here today (March 28).

She added that there are two other bazaars in the capital, at Lorong Tunku Abdul Rahman Parking Lot 4 and at Jalan Raja, involving 41 traders.

"The criteria for a Rahmah Ramadan bazaar is that 30% of traders there are ready to sell Rahmah menus. But if we look at things here (Kuala Lumpur), 100% of food trucks are selling Rahmah menus,” Fuziah said.

Yesterday (March 27), Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Minister Datuk Seri Salahuddin Ayub launched the Rahmah Ramadan bazaar in Putrajaya, the newest product under the Rahmah Umbrella initiative, involving 38 locations in the country.

Meanwhile, Fuziah said that the ministry’s enforcement unit has conducted price checks on 6,550 premises, including 983 Ramadan bazaars under Op Pantau as of yesterday.

"We received complaints about prices, but ministry enforcement personnel have carried out their duties since the first day of Ramadan,” she added. - Bernama
