Yours Truly am going to show you all how to get your fuel rebates online through PosOnline but before that, a little bit of revelations on the matter.
A while back the Malaysian Government announced the fuel rebate for vehicle owners of not more than RM625 for cars and RM150 for motorcycle which is a one-off for one year subsidy scheme aimed to mitigate the impact of fuel price increase.
Pos Malaysia Berhad (PMB) has been appointed as the source for disbursement of the rebates to vehicle owners.
The implementation of the rebates will be done in 3 phases, directly quoted from PosOnline:
* For Phase I of the implementation, eligible Malaysians whose road tax were purchased or renewed with effective date from 1 April 2008 until 31 May 2008 can start to claim the subsidy at 683 post offices countrywide from 14 June 2008 (Saturday) until 31 March 2009.
* For Phase II of the implementation, vehicle owners who have purchased or renewed their road tax from 1 June 2008 until 31 March 2009, can commence their Cash Rebate claims at post offices from 1 July 2008 (Tuesday) onwards.
* For Phase III of the implementation, vehicle owner who have purchased or renewed their road tax from 1 April 2008 until 31 March 2009 at any of the 683 Post Offices or JPJ counters or Myeg, can commence their Cash Rebate claims via PosOnline from 1 August 2008 (Friday) onwards.
