Cash rebates end next month

Postby admin » Tue Feb 24, 2009 2:18 pm

KUALA LUMPUR: The cash rebate system for vehicles under 2,000cc, which was implemented in June last year, will end on March 31, Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Shahrir Samad confirmed.

He said this was because the cash rebate system had completed its one-year cycle, which was the initial plan.

“March 31 is the last date. We will end it in March,” he told reporters after launching the “Malaysian Products are Our Choice,” and “Buy Malaysian Products” campaign here Tuesday. The campaign will last until March 1.

“Whoever has yet to collect their cash rebates, please do so,” he added.

On the Government’s plans for future subsidies, and if the cash rebate system would be implemented again, Shahrir replied:

“I don’t think we’ll be using this method of subsidising again, because I see that Malaysians prefer subsidised pump prices.

“They seem to prefer lower pump prices rather than having money given out to them,” he said, adding that about RM5bil would have been disbursed by March.

He also said the Government planned to set the value of RON95 petrol at RM1.70 when it is introduced in the middle of this year.

“We want to give consumers good value for their money. Now you’re paying RM1.70 for RON92, we’re planning to give RM1.70 for RON 95 as well.

Claims for cash rebate extended to April 14

Postby admin » Thu Mar 19, 2009 10:24 am

Claims under the cash rebate disbursement scheme for vehicle owners have been extended to April 14.

In a statement here today, Pos Malaysia said the government had informed the company about the extension.

It said eligible vehicle owners are encouraged to renew their road tax personally at any post offices nationwide for them to receive the rebate on the same day. They can also make claims through www.posonline.com.my and the rebate will be deposited to their bank account.

"For those who are unable to make the claim during working hours, they can came to post offices which operate after working hours or post offices which are open on weekends," Pos Malaysia said.

The rebate was introduced in April last year following the sharp increase in fuel prices and supposed to end on March 31.

Owners of vehicles with 2,000cc engines and below, and pick-up trucks and four-wheel-drive vehicles with 2,500cc engines and below are entitled to a rebate of RM625 per vehicle. Owners of motorcycles below 250cc are eligible for RM150.
