The Transport Ministry had renewed its contract with Puspakom and extended the concessionaire period for another 15 years.
Minister Datuk Ong Tee Keat said the contract, which was signed in 1994, expires next year but the Government had decided to extend it for another 15 years.
The renewal was made on Feb 14 last year between the ministry, Economy Planning Unit and Puspakom.
“Last year, the Road and Transport Department made 192 inspections in all Puspakom workshops throughout the country, instead of the required 384 inspections due to lack of manpower.
“The department only had four officers to carry out inspections,” he said.
