Govt extends BR1M scheme deadline to March 15

The deadline for the public to submit the application form for the RM500 Bantuan Rakyat 1Malaysia (BR1M) scheme has been further extended to March 15.

Second Finance Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah said the form could be submitted at all Inland Revenue Board (IRB) offices and agencies handling the aid.

The forms had been distributed since last month to assist households earning below RM3,000 a month. He said so far about 7 million people had applied for the RM500 cash aid.

Ahmad Husni said successful applicants would be given vouchers which they could cash at all Bank Simpanan Nasional, CIMB and Maybank branches.
