Negeri Sembilan govt expediting implementation of state's budget 2019
Last Update: 13/02/2019
SEREMBAN, Feb 13 (Bernama) -- The state government is expediting the implementation of every item allocated under the Negeri Sembilan 2019 Budget, among them the RM50 school bus fare aid or the ‘N9 Schoolchildren Aid’ for poor students, said Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Aminuddin Harun.
He said although every plan and initiative that had been announced was being carried out, they should be expedited for the benefit of the people.
“For example, the school bus fare aid for poor students was implemented on Jan 31, but it is taking us some time to collate the data of the 1,500 students eligible for it. Anyway, we are almost done and will speed it up. We will make sure the aid is backdated when it is disbursed.
“Apart from that, we are also trying to speed up the implementation of the ‘Entrepreneur Fund’ for youths and women as well as the “General Aid’ for the disabled (OKU). Those in the physically disabled group will have their aid increased to RM200 from the RM140 implemented before the Chinese New Year,” he told reporters after chairing the state executive council meeting here today.
Aminuddin said the process of expediting the state’s plans was to ensure all allocations in the budget were implemented now and not wait until the end of the year.
