A POST has gone viral on social media claiming that an additional Bantuan Tunai Rakyat cash aid payment of RM600 under the Sumbangan Asas Rahmah (Sara) programme will be made soon.
The viral post also asks those interested to click on a link provided to get more details such as the date of the payment.
Is there any truth to this?
In a post on their official Facebook account, the Finance Ministry said that this news is in fact false.
“Be careful and do not be easily swayed by such news. Please refer to all information on Sara at https://www.mof.gov.my/.../penerima-sumbangan-tunai,” it said.
The ministry added that the frequently asked questions and checks of an individual's eligibility for Sara can be found and done at https://bantuantunai.hasil.gov.my while additional information on Sara can be found at https://www.mykasih.com.my.
"Head to the portals or social media channels of the Finance Ministry for the latest valid information. If you are unsure, don't share," it said in the post.
