Ministry identifying recipients for targeted subsidies


KUALA LUMPUR: The Agri-culture and Food Security Ministry is actively engaging stakeholders to identify target groups for the implementation of targeted subsidies, says minister Datuk Seri Mohamad Sabu.

He said the initiative mainly involves industry players from the agriculture, livestock, fisheries and agricultural services sectors under the ministry.

“Thorough research is needed to ensure that subsidies reach deserving recipients,” he said in a Facebook post yesterday, Bernama reported

In the same post, Mohamad said he attended the Subsidy Control Scheme 2.0 online meeting with the Finance, Transport and Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Ministries at Wisma Tani, Putrajaya.

On Jan 2, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim launched the Central Database Hub (Padu) system to ensure fairer subsidy distribution and prevent leakage.

The introduction of the system was in line with the country’s digital transformation approach, ensuring that government facilities are enjoyed by rightful recipients.
