No petrol subsidy for non-citizens from May 1

2010/01/07

PETALING JAYA: From May 1, Malaysians and non-citizens will have to pay different petrol prices as foreigners are not eligible for subsidised petrol, Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced today.
"Currently everyone enjoys the subsidy including foreigners. From May 1, the purchase of petrol using MyKad will be introduced, where only citizens will get the subsidy," he said.

Not all citizens will also get to enjoy the subsidy like now.

An announcement on the detailed mechanics of the system will be made on May 1.

"Under the citizens category, there will be sub-categories where only targeted groups will get the subsidy," he said after officiating the launch of a new corporate identity for Fraser & Neave Holdings Bhd's beverage division.

He said the petrol subsidy for those who qualify will be based on the engine capacity of their vehicles.

The focus will be on those with lower income who also usually use cars with smaller engines, he said.

Ismail said the government currently subsidised 30 sen of the RON 95 fuel cost. The original price of RON 95 is RM2.10.

"Therefore, the price of subsidised RON 95 is RM1.80."

Under the new system, those who don't qualify and foreigners will pay RM2.10 or more for RON 95, he said.

Those who qualify for the subsidy will pay RM1.80 as fixed now.

Ismail said the government might also impose tax on foreigners which is to be determined by the Finance Ministry.

Besides oil, the government currently also subsidises gas, flour and sugar.
Ismail also said that while sugar price had been increased by 20 sen, the government still provided a subsidy of 80 sen for the item.

"Last year, the government provided a subsidy of 60 sen per kg, but due to the drastic rise in world sugar price from August last year, the government had to bear a subsidy of RM1.00, and that is why we increased the price," he said.

With the 80 sen subsidy given, the government will be bearing a subsidy cost of RM1.008 billion this year compared with RM720 million last year.--BERNAMA

Does this mean that Malaysians who have a MyKad but drive Singapore cars (since they are PRs) will enjoy subsidized petrol rates? Doesn't make sense but I'm not complaining.

Will Singapore throw away the 3/4 tank regulatory since there is no advantage to buy gas in Malaysia then?

It is all about protection. Singapore wants to protect the gas business in country and Malaysai want to protect subsidy being exploited. Those who suffer are the one going globalization.

(wonder if it is going to be 3/4 for foreign car going out of singapore.... just for thought).

They are talking about subsidised and non-subsidised. But the word taxed is not in the sentence.

Our petrol are heavily taxed.

Not subsidised is bad enough.

Combo with heavy tax is killer.

They're promoting the citizen to take public transport... but public transport like bus is just horrible. Train at least it ok, but not everyone is staying near MRT Station Smile

I think if there is a new garmen of a new country, the garmen should take pointer fm countries that have BMT.......similarly, the garmen then should enforce that her citizens do BMT (ie take bus) for say 6 months...then can pass.....

PS: I am presently doing this 'BMT' for the pass 1.5 years....seems like i sign-up to be regular...sian half

I read somewhere that during Our Uncle's visit to Moscow, he mentioned that the only way to control your people is to control their housing. Now you know why our PUBLIC housing can cost S$0.5m.
