Hoping for Padu to be holistic

THE government has come up with the national Central Database Hub (Padu), a system for collating individual and household profiles of citizens and permanent residents in the country. In the words of Economy Minister Rafizi Ramli, it is a “single sign-on” for government services.

Ultimately, we are told, Padu’s purpose revolves around leveraging comprehensive data to inform policy decisions, enhance the accuracy of subsidy distribution, and ensure fair social protection programmes.
