Subsidised Diesel Reimbursement Applications Open July 1

Eligible participants of the second phase of the Subsidised Diesel Control System (SKDS 2.0) who have not received their fleet cards can apply for reimbursements starting July 1, according to FMT. The Finance Ministry has announced that these applications must be submitted via the Budi Madani portal, with applicants required to keep their receipts for audit purposes.

Registration Deadline and Application Process

To qualify for reimbursements, applicants must be registered under SKDS 2.0 by June 30 at the latest. The Finance Ministry has urged companies already registered under the system to apply for their fleet cards as soon as possible through the provided portal.

Temporary Measure for Smooth Transition

Second Finance Minister Amir Hamzah Azizan emphasised that the government is closely monitoring the implementation of the targeted diesel subsidy system to ensure a smooth transition. “These reimbursements are a temporary measure to help logistics service providers so that they are not affected by the change in diesel prices,” he stated.

Advice for Bus and Van Drivers

Transport Minister Loke Siew Fook has advised bus and van drivers who have not yet received their fleet cards to retain their fuel receipts to claim costs from the government later. He noted that many drivers might not have received their fleet cards due to last-minute applications.

Diesel Price Increase

The price of diesel in West Malaysia has been raised from RM2.15 per litre to RM3.35, reflecting the unsubsidised market price based on the average for May 2024. This price will be reviewed weekly.
