Padu: Those who don't register, will have their basic data entered into the system

PETALING JAYA: Those who do not register on the Central Database Hub (Padu) system will still have their basic data automatically entered into the system, says Datuk Seri Mohd Uzir Mahidin.

The chief statistician said that the data stored in the Padu system would make it easier for the Statistics Department to carry out analysis and census activities as well as to facilitate the distribution of government aid.

In addition to that, it would help the government introduce policies which suit the needs of the people.

He added that the Statistics Department needed dynamic data to carry out analysis, and for individuals who did not register with the Padu system, the department would use existing basic data.

"As we stated before, this system is safe to use, and the data stored in the Padu system is also safe," he said.

He was quoted as saying by Bernama during a press conference after Padu’s registration with the chief statistician programme at Flat Seri Aman, Section 22, here on Sunday (March 31).

He also said that since the Padu system was launched on Jan 2, the system had continued to function without interruption or downtime, despite high traffic volume.

"That is one of the proofs that the system has been developed well, to ensure that the registration service and the information update process can be done smoothly, Mohd Uzir said.

"As we stated before, this system is safe to use, and the data stored in the Padu system is also safe," he said.

Registration for the Padu system ends at midnight on Sunday.
