Ejamin poised to facilitate RM450 mln in bail collections this year

21/01/2021 03:51 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 21 -- Pertama Digital Bhd’s digital bail payment solution, eJamin, is projected to record a total bail collection of RM450 million in 2021 compared to RM45.46 million last year. 

Executive director Sabri Ab Rahman said the acceptance of eJamin by the tech-savvy Malaysian judiciary, as well as the general public, was encouraging. 

"To date, eJamin has been implemented in 133 court complexes nationwide and the number is growing,” he said in a statement today, adding that eJamin was developed by the investment holding company’s portfolio entity, DAPAT Vista (M) Sdn Bhd.

DAPAT, a unit of Pertama Digital’s 51 per cent-owned subsidiary Television Airtime Services Sdn Bhd, is a homegrown company specialising in mobile technology and digitalisation of government services.

Sabri said the company was seeking banks’ cooperation to lift the Financial Process Exchange (FPX) transfer limit on eJamin transactions.

“Bail amounts in Malaysia can range from a few thousand ringgit up to more than a million. Today, there is a payment transfer limit per transaction.

“Therefore, we need the backing of PayNet, certain banks and the authorities to revise the FPX and bank transfer limits to help make the use of online bail payments applicable to a wider variety of cases,” he said. 

Meanwhile, DAPAT chief executive officer Amanda Sabri said it updated eJamin to version 2.0 last month and a new feature would be launched in this quarter to enable direct transfer of bail refunds to pay fines imposed by the courts.

She said Pertama Digital was also looking into expanding the digital bail system to include police remand cases and the Shariah criminal courts.  

“In light of the re-implementation of the Movement Control Order, the courts are ensuring that bail transactions can be processed as usual.

“The use of eJamin directly contributes to that objective, for the ease of the rakyat,” she said.
