KUANTAN, March 19 — Visitors to Rahmah Ramadan Bazaars stand a chance to receive RM20 incentive each, through e-wallet platforms which involves a total allocation of about RM2 million, said Deputy Minister of Domestic Trade and Living Costs Senator Fuziah Salleh.
She said the incentive would be given to the first 1,000 visitors at selected bazaars through operators or providers of e-wallet platforms that are working in collaboration with the ministry.
“In each state, it will be implemented six times, which means 6,000 visitors will benefit from this initiative but each person is entitled to the incentive only once.
“Apart from helping to reduce the cost of living, the move is to educate and get the community to shop with e-wallets to make way for a cashless society, ” Fuziah told reporters after a programme in conjunction with Ramadan at the Farmer’s Market here, today which was also attended by Pahang Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority (Fama) director Saiful Sadri.
Elaborating, she said so far 29 bazaars have registered for the Rahmah Ramadan Bazaar programme and the ministry is targeting it to be held at 50 locations nationwide.
Fuziah also reminded Ramadan bazaar traders to display food prices at all times to avoid being caught for violating the Price Control and Anti-Profiteering Act 2011.
Meanwhile, Saiful said Fama is targeting sales of over RM3 million through the MADANI Ramadan Sales Programme which will be held throughout the fasting month at 18 locations in Pahang.
