Quoting Second Finance Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah’s Utusan Malaysia statement, people who have an income of RM 5000 a month will continue to enjoy government subsidies.

But for individuals who earn RM 10,000 upwards, the aid will be withdrawn.

“The first level (income less than RM 5000) will continue to enjoy a subsidy of one hundred percent , the second stage of lower to middle income earners are entitled to lesser amount, while those who have an income of RM10,000 will not be subsidized .”

This system is currently in the process of a comprehensive review and is scheduled to be carried out from June 2015 onwards.MYNEWSHUB
