“We believe that the RM50 ePENJANA incentive will further encourage e-wallet use amongst Malaysians and serve as an added measure to safeguard the health of Malaysians with contactless payments as Covid-19 remains a threat,” he said.
Mohd Khairil also noted that more importantly, it will help stimulate the local economy.
