Residents in Malaysia have a chance to receive RM20-worth of incentives through their online wallets, thanks to the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Cost of Living’s (KPDN) allocated budget of RM2.3 million.
KPDN Minister Fuziah Salleh clarified via The Star on Monday that the incentive will be given to the first 1,000 visitors at selected bazaars in each state, who are eligible to claim the initiative only once during their visit.
The Rahmah Ramadan Bazaar programme also aims to educate the community about e-payments as the ministry attempts to shift into a cashless society.
According to the report, 28 bazaars had already registered for the programme, as of March 20, while the ministry plans to expand the initiative to target 50 locations across the country. Participating traders are required to display the food prices at all times, in accordance with the Price Control and Anti-Profiteering Act 2011.
In Johor Baru, some of the iftar food options that you can feast on are affordable meals from truck vendors such as Popia S.S. Ali, Yus Laksa Corner, and Asma Rojak, among others.
On the other hand, retail company MYDIN will also be present, offering ready-to-eat set meals for only RM4.90.
