One-off RM200 rebate for one 3G smartphone purchase
Malaysian youths will be able to enjoy a one-off rebate of RM200 for the purchase of one 3G smartphone from an authorised dealer through the Youth Communication Package, announced by the prime minister today.
Datuk Seri Najib Razak said the package would be introduced by the government with the cooperation of the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commmission and telecommunication companies to enable youths to access the information highway.
This is because the majority of the 22 per cent of Malaysians who use the smartphone to surf the Internet are youths.
The special package is for youths aged 21 to 30 years with a monthly income of RM3,000 and below.
"A sum of RM300 million is allocated for this to benefit 1.5 million youths," said Najib, who is also Finance Minister, when tabling the 2013 Budget in Parliament, here, today.
He said the government would also organise the Putrajaya Youth Festival, the largest youth gathering in Malaysia, in conjunction with 2013 as the National Volunteer Year. - Bernama
