BACHOK, — The closing date for the registration of the 1 Malaysia People’s Aid (BR1M 2.0), which should have ended on December 31, has been extended to January 15 and payment is set to commence on February 2.

Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Dr Awang Adek Hussin said the extension was to provide an opportunity for eligible unmarried people aged 21 years to apply.

He told this to reporters after attending a Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) community function here today.

In the 2013 Budget presentation last September, the government announced BR1M 2.0 would be extended to unmarried persons aged 21 years earning RM2,000 or less a month. They are eligible to receive RM250.

Awang Adek, who is also Kelantan Umno Liaison Committee deputy chairman, also said 30 poor residents in Bachok also had electric wiring installed in their houses under the TNB programme today.

He said the programme was a pioneer project before being extended to other districts in the state. — Bernama
