SHAH ALAM, Feb 6 — The application for the RM350 motorcycle license subsidy will start from March 1, says Selangor Youth, Sports and Human Capital Development Committee chairman Mohd Khairuddin Othman.
He said application forms will be distributed to each state assembly office and shortlisting of candidates will be carried out by the Selangor State Sports Council’s youth generation development division.
“We have also planned several initiatives to encourage more youths to take part in the subsidy programme. We are currently identifying several locations for it.
“Priority will be given to those coming from the lower-income group or poor families,” he told SelangorKini yesterday.
Last year, the state government allocated RM1 million for the Roda Darul Ehsan (RiDE) scheme, which provides a RM350 subsidy to 3,000 youths taking motor licences.
Selangor Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari said with the subsidy, more youths would be able to join the service and logistics sectors in the state.
