Lembaga Hasil Dalam Negeri (LHDN) has announced that bankrupt or blacklisted individuals are also eligible for the Bantuan Prihatin Nasional (BPN) aid, and can now make online applications for it.
“Their applications will be processed based on the eligibility criteria that have been set. For applications that have been approved, BSN payments will be made in cash at Bank Simpanan Nasional,” said the department in a statement.
The BPN aid was announced by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin as part of the Prihatin Economic Stimulus Package, and is meant to provide some relief for Malaysians in coping with the negative economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and movement control order (MCO). A total of RM9.24 billion has been allocated for this aid, which will paid out to eligible recipients in two phases starting from 6 April 2020.
For enquiries, you can also contact LHDN through the Hasil Care Line at 03-8911 1000, the HASiL Live Chat, or the customer feedback page. Alternatively, you can head on over to its Facebook and Twitter page.
