Malaysians who are eligible for the recently launched e-Tunai Rakyat programme, but do not possess smartphones to claim their RM30 might just be able to get their share of the e-cash awards via bank deposits instead.

“We can study the matter in the future. Let’s run this programme first (e-Tunai Rakyat) and look at its development. If there are many complaints about this matter (the request to bank in the RM30), we will consider them,” said Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng.

Should that happen, the allocation will be made into the bank accounts of beneficiaries who are also recipients of the government’s Bantuan Sara Hidup (BSH) programme.

The e-Tunai Rakyat initiative, which saw 380,000 applications made on the first day itself, is currently disbursing its RM30 digital credit to eligible individuals through Touch ‘n Go eWallet, GrabPay, and Boost. Each e-wallet provider also sweetened the incentive with offers of extra bonuses.

Guan Eng has previously assured that all eligible Malaysians will get the RM30 incentive, as long as they apply within the initiative period. If you have yet to claim your e-Tunai Rakyat credit, you have until 14 March 2020 to do so.
