MoF: RM495m channelled to 9.9 million receivers under ePenjana as at Aug 21
KUALA LUMPUR (Aug 27): A total of RM495.4 million has been channelled to 9.9 million ePenjana credit receivers nationwide as at Aug 21 this year, the Ministry of Finance (MoF) said.
Deputy Finance Minister II Mohd Shahar Abdullah said the ePenjana applications have been opened since July 31, 2020 until Sept 24, 2020 and credit received must be spent before Sept 30, 2020.
“Regarding data privacy, we don’t need to worry because during application, the terms and conditions remain the same. Only this time, we have an additional condition that applicants must use the MySejahtera app and all data privacy are subjected to Personal Data Protection Act 2010,” he told the Dewan Rakyat today.
He said this in response to a question from Wong Shu Qi (DAP-Kluang) on the number of applicants that had successfully redeemed the RM50 ePenjana credit until June 30, 2020.
