The communications and multimedia ministry is planning to impose an additional charge of 20 sen for purchases of between RM200 and RM1,000 on online platforms, says deputy minister Zahidi Zainul Abidin.

He said this was to raise a special fund to assist the B40 group, including to improve communications infrastructure in rural areas.

“We are discussing the plan to be tabled to the government to find alternative resources which will not burden the people. We also want to give the best services to them.

“The additional charge will be like the service charge, and if the purchase exceeds RM1,000, the additional charge will be 40 sen,” he told reporters after attending a programme in Pengkalan Petah today.

He said no additional charge would be imposed on purchases of below RM200 while an additional 20 sen would be charged for the next RM1,000 worth of purchases.

Earlier in his speech, Zahidi said the government plans to impose an additional charge for purchases made via e-commerce platforms such as Lazada and Shopee.
