It will provide subsidised diesel quotas to the land transport (goods) sector.
PETALING JAYA: The pilot project for the subsidised diesel control system 2.0 (SKDS 2.0), which will be used to implement retargeted diesel subsidies in the second quarter of 2024, entered its first day today at 3,792 petrol stations in the peninsula.
New Straits Times reported domestic trade and cost of living minister Armizan Mohd Ali as saying that the bulk subsidy system would no longer be used at petrol stations following the retargeting.
“Through the retargeting initiative, the government will essentially provide special-rate subsidies to the land transport sector for the public and goods sub-sector.

“The ministry is carrying out efforts to test the MySubsidi Diesel system before the roll-out of the diesel subsidy retargeting, the date of which will be determined later.
“The MySubsidi Diesel system will be used together with the oil companies’ fleet card system to implement subsidy targeting in the future,” he said after surveying the first day of the fleet card implementation for the goods sector at Petronas KLIA 1, Jalan Terminal, in Sepang.
Armizan previously said that the pilot project would provide subsidised diesel quotas to the land transport (goods) sector.
