There’s plenty of excitement for e-wallet users when Malaysian Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin announced the government would be crediting RM50 to a selected groups of Malaysians.
The RM50 e-wallet credit is part of the ePenjana program which is spending some RM35 billion to kick-start Malaysia’s economy after the Covid-19 pandemic almost crippled the nation’s economy due to a lengthy lock down.
Not much details were announced on how the RM50 credit would be distributed by the government, but Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Ismail Sabri Yaakob made it clear that those wanting to enjoy the benefit would need to download the MySejahtera app first.
The multi-function app was developed by the Malaysian Government to help the authorities do contact tracing and share valid news on the current Covid-19 pandemic.
Despite Sabri’s announcement on the pre-requirements for the RM50 e-wallet credit, there’s still some questions lingering in my head about the ePENJANA M50 e-wallet.
Among them are questions regarding the methods that will be used to distribute the RM50 e-wallet credit, and how the government plans to identify those whom had already downloaded the MySejahtera app is is eligible for the credit.
