PUTRAJAYA: The National Central Database Hub (PADU) launched today by the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was in line with the approach and digital transformation that would benefit the rightful group.
The prime minister said, the government via the Ministry of Economy has introduced PADU that is seen capable to reduce the leakages and subsidy expenditures more than RM80 billion borne by the government.
“I have touched on the current era that demands new determination and non compromise on the old system that has excessive leakages and frauds to the extent there are still poor people in the country.
‘The channelling of subsidies without the digital approach will only lead the rich and foreigners to get the benefits without the right support system,” Anwar said in his Facebook post, Tuesday.
He said, the PADU registration is open directly starting Tuesday until 31st March to enable members of the public to update and confirm 39 personal information items such as identification card number, number of households and address.
All Malaysian citizens aged 18 years and above need to register and check the data via PADU portal https://padu.gov.my/
“PADU that I launched today contains individual profile and households including citizens and permanent residents in Malaysia and is a national socio-economic data base that is integrated and coordinates data from departments and government agencies. It gives a fair socio-economic picture of every Malaysian household,” said the Tambun Member of Parliament (MP).-Malaysia World News
