eMadani appeals will prioritise 'Rahmah' eligible recipients, says deputy minister

PONTIAN: The Finance Ministry is reviewing appeals of eligible applicants whose eMadani e-wallet credits were rejected.

Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan said the appeals process would prioritise eligible Rahmah Cash Contribution or 'Sumbangan Tunai Rahmah (STR)' recipients first. He said an announcement on the eMadani appeals will be made soon.

"The idea behind eMadani was to promote the use of e-wallet methods to enhance the digital economy, besides helping the rakyat.

"It also supports Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) and the local economy," he said.

The ministry received multiple complaints from rejected eMadani applicants, including people who faced difficulties applying for it.

Ahmad said the ministry will be conducting a comparison of data between the STR recipients and eMadani applicants to rectify the discrepancies in applications.

"There are 8.7 million STR recipients, with some whose eMadani applications were turned down, they are the primary group who will be considered for appeals," he said.

He added that the ministry held a meeting chaired by Prime Ministers Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim last Wednesday.

"The Treasury secretary-general Datuk Johan Mahmood Merican also attended the meeting, and it was concluded that an announcement on the appeals will be made," he said.

Earlier, Ahmad visited the proposed site to build a community college in Benut, which is located within his constituency near here today.

The one-off RM100 e-cash credit was announced by the prime minister under the Madani Economy Framework.
