Armizan: Fleet card issuance to be expedited


THE process of issuing the diesel subsidy fleet card by the five participating major oil companies under the Subsidised Diesel Control System 2.0 (SKDS 2.0) will be expedited, says Datuk Armizan Mohd Ali.

While admitting in Parliament that there were some delays, the Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Minister said to address the issue, the ministry was taking several steps, including requesting oil companies to implement the use of cash cards.

“In the approval stage of MySubsidi Diesel, there is no problem in the ministry. We can approve the applications immediately after receiving the full documents.

“But there is a problem in terms of the issuance of the fleet card by the oil companies. In addition to providing refunds, my ministry and the Finance Ministry are also simplifying the process.

“We are also requesting that oil companies implement the use of cash cards while waiting for the fleet card to be issued.

“We will continue our engagement with the oil companies to ensure the fleet card will be issued faster,” he said in reply to a supplementary question from Khoo Poay Tiong (PH-Kota Melaka).

Khoo had asked the ministry to explain the delay in the issuance of the fleet card under SKDS 2.0.

In his question, Khoo said although the ministry granted approval around March and April, many land transportation companies have yet to receive the fleet card.

Due to this delay, the DAP MP said it had caused problems to these companies although they can claim reimbursement.

The five main oil companies involved are PETRONAS, Shell, Petron, Caltex and BHP.

The government started accepting applications for refunds from recipients of SKDS 2.0 on July 1.

This facility is available exclusively to owners of eligible logistics vehicles whose applications have been approved under SKDS 2.0 but have not yet received the fleet card.

Eligible applicants can apply for the refund through the Budi Madani portal at https://budimadani.gov.my.
