Almost 200,000 vehicles approved for diesel subsidy, ministry reports surge in applications

PETALING JAYA: A total of 198,046 public transport and goods vehicles of 59,940 companies have been approved for the Diesel Subsidy Control System (SKDS) as of June 12.

The Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Ministry said the Budi Madani (SKDS 2.0), initially covering nine types of goods vehicles on March 7, was expanded to include another 14 types of vehicles on May 13.

"With SKDS 1.0 covering 10 vehicles, a total of 33 types of public transport vehicles are now included in the list," said Minister Datuk Armizan Mohd Ali on Thursday (June 13).

Armizan noted that initially, there were a total of 156,242 vehicles under application from 40,262 companies as of June 9.

He highlighted the significant daily increase in applications after the announcement of the new subsidy rationalisation pricing on June 10.

The minister assured that immediate approvals would be granted under the MySubsidi Diesel system if all details were in order.

"The ministry is forecasting continuous higher applications until June 30, in line with the cash payment to SKDS recipients who have yet to receive their fleet card.

"Those who are eligible can immediately apply through to receive the targeted subsidy offered by the government," added Armizan.
