PETALING JAYA: The Crisis Preparedness and Response Centre (CPRC) has clarified that there is no need to register with the MySejahtera application when filling petrol, following reports yesterday that individuals could be fined for not doing so.
In an email response to a public enquiry sighted by FMT, the CPRC said the requirement to scan the app’s QR code is for when individuals enter the premises.
“Brief encounters such as filling petrol at pump stations or while making payments do not require MySejahtera scanning,” read the email.
A National Security Council (MKN) officer confirmed the matter with FMT.
Bukit Aman CID deputy director Mior Faridalathrash Wahid had been quoted by several news outlets as saying that people were still required to scan the app even if they do not enter a petrol station’s convenience store.
This follows a viral audio clip of a man alleging that his father was fined RM1,000 because he did not register with the app while refuelling.
