Swift process for diesel passes

PUTRAJAYA: Immediate approvals will be given for complete applications under the Subsidised Diesel Control System (SKDS), which encompasses 33 categories of public and goods land transportation, says Datuk Armizan Mohd Ali.

The Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Minister said the application process is designed to be straightforward and swift, requiring companies to submit only minimal information.

Verification is done instantaneously through integration with the Road Transport Department (JPJ) system.

“Eligible companies listed in the 33 types of qualifying public and goods land transportation are encouraged to apply promptly,” he said in a statement yesterday.

Applications can be submitted through https://mysubsidi.kpdn.gov.my/, and approval letters will be issued instantly, he added.

Armizan said 226,957 public transport and goods vehicles from 75,541 companies have been approved for SKDS by his ministry as of June 23.

He said these companies can proceed with fleet card applications from their preferred oil companies using the same system.Approvals obtained by June 30 will allow transport companies to claim reimbursement for expenses at the subsidised rate through purchase receipts until the company receives the fleet card from their chosen oil companies.

Following a Finance Ministry statement on June 12, reimbursement payments will commence from July for those who register and obtain SKDS approval by June 30. The ministry will announce the procedures for claims and reimbursement shortly.

Armizan reminded approved companies to use the fleet cards strictly for approved vehicle applications. Any misuse of fleet cards will lead to stringent action, including the revocation of fleet cards for the implicated vehicles.

He said his ministry is currently coordinating appeals from certain transport sectors that wish to join SKDS.

These appeals will be reviewed by the appeals committee, which includes various ministries and agencies, before being submitted for consideration by the Cabinet.

He also said traders, particularly those receiving diesel subsidies through fleet cards, should not raise prices using the new diesel price setting as a justification.

Armizan said the ministry has mobilised enforcement and price-monitoring officers nationwide to continue overseeing the prices of goods and services at all levels of the supply chain.

If profiteering activities are detected, the ministry will take firm action under the Price Control and Anti-Profiteering Act 2011.

Earlier, the ministry outlined the eligible vehicles under SKDS, segmented into three categories: SKDS 1.0, SKDS 2.0 Phase I and SKDS 2.0 Phase II.

Eligible vehicles include school buses, express buses, shuttle buses, taxis, ambulances, fire trucks, general cargo lorries and vehicles transporting agricultural products, livestock and catered food, among others.
