Cash Rebates From Today....

From today (Saturday, June 14), vehicle and motorcycle owners eligible for cash rebates can claim them at 683 post offices nationwide.

You have until March next year (under the first phase) to claim your rebates.

With the recently-announced fuel price hike, the government is offering owners of cars of up to 2,000cc, as well as pick-up trucks and jeeps of up to 2,500cc RM625 for each vehicle, while motorcyclists with vehicles of up to 250cc will receive RM150 each.

Here's what you have to do:

* bring along your original identity card or MyKad or police/army identity card.

* you will need to fill in details like their full name, identity card number and vehicle registration number on the prescribed form available at the post offices.

* those who have more than one vehicle have to fill a separate form for each vehicle, for up to five vehicles (cars or combination of cars and motorcycles).

* during the Phase I period, third parties are not allowed to make the claims on behalf of vehicle owners.

* Pos Malaysia staff will make verifications with the Road Transport Department's (JPJ) database to determine the eligibility for the cash rebate.

* under Phase I, vehicle owners whose road tax are between April 1 and May 31 this year could start claiming the subsidy from June 14 to March 31 next year.

* vehicle owners who purchased or renewed their road tax between June 1 this year and March 31, 2009, could make their claims from July 1 this year (under Phase II).

* transactions can also be made via money order, following the same procedure but claimants must include their permanent or postal address and telephone contact number in the forms before dropping the forms in the boxes provided at the post offices. The maximum waiting period is seven days and the vehicle owners can cash the money order at any nearest post office or make deposits in their bank account.

Some 2,000 counter staff members will be involved in the exercise.

I wonder if all this is necessary, and what the admin costs for all the extra manpower, programming, payroll, etc would costs. Why don't the govt just increase fuel prices less. They give with one hand and take with the other.

Good business for Pos Malaysia. If I'm not mistaken, ECM Libra has shares in Pos Malaysia. Or was it Avenue Capital?

Btw, those who own diesel-powered cars (private owners) may have something to cheer on Budget Day. The Second Finance Minister told me that lowering the road tax and insurance for diesel cars (these owners pay a lot higher than those who own petrol-powered vehicles) is geing considered.
Keyword is "MAY", ok?

from the banker perspective, each Pos staff man the counter has to do reconciliation of the cash every end of the day....and remember they are handling cash...cant imagine how much they provision the cash to the staff on daily basis.....this also inviting fraud

what a stupid move by the gomen. menyusahkan rakyat and so inefficient...we would either have to curi tulang (if keje gomen, easier to curi tulang n makan gaji buta) or take leave for private people...what a shame! how inefficient it'll be. waste of time, money and energy while bodohwi up there is sitting comfortably in his PM seat in heavily air cond(ed) room (sleeping maybe) while the rakyat suffer. So much for Islam hadhari....it's Islam dah-lari for him lah! oh, and not to forget, how inefficient n slow gomen services are...hence there are huge possibility that the forms/application might be lost in space, no idea how long is the waiting period to obtain such a small amount of money vs the effort put in for it. I'll call this CRAP! what happen to our leaders? this is what happen when qualitifications are given to them instead of obtained!

Salam kak ina:-

Apalah kau orang. Lain takdak mahu senang dan sedap aje.Bagi salah tak bagi lagi salah.

Dah dihidangkan makanan, makan sajalah. Ni hendak disuapkan pulak.

Kalau tak mahu susah2 duduk saja di rumah doa banyak2 mintak jodoh datang ke riba, duit melayang ke poket,beras siam penuh di bakul..apa2 sajalah yang dihajat...
