Apply for fleet cards to enjoy diesel subsidy, goods vehicle owners told


KUANTAN: Owners of goods vehicles have been reminded to apply for fleet cards immediately to enjoy subsidised diesel once the government implements the targeted diesel subsidies.

Deputy Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Minister Fuziah Salleh said around 90,000 fleet cards have been issued and currently 23 categories of goods vehicles qualify for the subsidy.

"When the diesel subsidy is withdrawn, the prices at petrol stations will be for unsubsidised diesel and those who hold the fleet card can buy it at subsidised prices... that’s why it’s important to apply.

"For now, the registration process for the fleet cards is still open and I urge those who qualify to do so,” she told a press conference after a ministry enforcement operation here on Tuesday (May 28).

During the operation, a joint team from the ministry and the Pahang Immigration Department raided a grocery shop and a restaurant here after receiving public complaints.

The team identified several offences, including failure to maintain a book on stocks of controlled items under Regulation 13(2) of the Control of Supplies Regulations 1974.

"Leakages relating to subsidised cooking oil packs were also found as they were sent to the restaurant next door for business purposes when the packs are meant for household use,” she said. – Bernama
