Targeted fuel subsidy pilot test – B40/M40 to receive e-wallet credit, but everyone to pay higher fuel prices?

Dateline 2022-07-29,

Yet more on the targeted approach to fuel subsidy being planned by the government. Earlier this week, finance minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz said that a mechanism for targeted subsidy is being tested, and that the system would be trialled for between three to six months before it is implemented.

Now, a potential method that might be employed for the format has been indicated, and it comes in the form of e-wallets. This was revealed by Datuk Johan Mahmood Merican, deputy secretary-general for policy of the treasury at the ministry of finance.
