BRIM 2.0 registration extended to Jan 15, says Awang Adek
BACHOK: The closing date for the registration of the 1Malaysia People's Aid (BR1M 2.0), which should have ended on Dec 31, has been extended to Jan 15 and payment is set to commence on Feb 2.
Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Dr Awang Adek Hussin said the extension was to provide opportunities for eligible unmarried people aged 21 years to apply.
He told this to reporters after attending a Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) community function here Saturday.
In the 2013 Budget presentation last September, the government announced BR1M 2.0 would be extended to unmarried persons aged 21 years earning RM2,000 or less a month. They are eligible to receive RM250.
Awang Adek, who is also Kelantan Umno Liaison Committee deputy chairman, also said 30 poor residents in Bachok also had electric wiring installed in their houses under the TNB programme Saturday.
He said the programme was a pioneer project before being extended to other districts in the state. - Bernama
