Previously in the Budget 2013, the government included a RM200 smartphone rebate program for youth which is called Pakej Komunikasi Belia (Youth Communication Package). And, the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission website announced that to get a rebate of RM200, the price of the phone cannot be higher than RM500. The result of this announcement has received a lot of criticisms from the people in the country, thinking that what a good smartphone they can buy if the smartphone price is less than RM500, better not to buy!
Today, the Cabinet finally agreed to make changes, as long as the monthly income of less than RM3,000 (young people between the ages of 21 to 30-year-old), you can buy a smart phone of any style and price, and with a rebate of RM200. RM200 smartphone rebate youth communications supporting has begun accepting applications.
