KUALA LUMPUR: The Central Database Hub (Padu) is a game changer for data management in Malaysia, says Fahmi Fadzil.

The Communications Minister noted that if an individual wanted to deal with three public sector institutions, they might end up having to fill up many different documents with tens of supporting documents with nearly similar information.

"But now, with Padu, all the data is under one roof, and the public no longer need to fill in data repeatedly,” he said in a Facebook post Tuesday (Jan 2), adding that currently there were 455 public sector institutions in the country, including 70 ministries, departments and agencies, 13 state governments, 83 federal statutory bodies, 134 state statutory bodies and 155 local authorities.

He also shared his willingness to sign up for Padu and urged the public to do the same at the following link, www.padu.gov.my/.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim had stated during Padu’s launch at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre earlier Tuesday that the system was introduced in line with the national digital transformation approach, and assured that every government facility would be enjoyed by qualified beneficiaries.

Padu is the national integrated socio-economic database that combines data from government departments and agencies. Containing the profiles of individuals and households from Malaysian nationals and permanent residents, it will provide a fair picture on the socioeconomic position of every household in Malaysia.
