PUTRAJAYA- The names of about 433,000 National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PTPTN) loan defaulters will be taken out of the no-fly list soon.
Education Minister Dr Maszlee Malik said his ministry was working towards lifting the travel ban on these defaulters in stages from May 24 to June 15.
He added that PTPTN had previously blacklisted about one million loan defaulters.
About 655,000 defaulters, he said, had settled their loans totalling RM1.9 billion.
“The (names of the) remaining 433,000 (defaulters) are being cleared in stages from May 24 to June 15. We have promised to get all the blacklisted names out of the Immigration Department’s blacklist.
“We expect to settle this before mid-June,” he told reporters during a press conference today.- New Straits Times
