KUALA LUMPUR: A total of 315,760 PerantiSiswa devices, or 86%, have been distributed to recipients out of 366,843 approved applications to date, Communications and Digital Minister Fahmi Fadzil said.

He said two methods would be used to distribute the remaining devices to 51,083 recipients, including expediting the distribution at recipient institutions.

In addition, the PerantiSiswa Distribution Centres (PPPs) will be mobilised simultaneously nationwide, namely from Feb 17 to 19 (first session), Feb 24 to 26 (second session) and March 3 to 5 (third session) at higher learning institutions that have been identified in each state.

"Centralised distribution will allow recipients to choose the appropriate centre and session regardless of the locality of their original institution.
