Eligible youths are now able to redeem their RM 200 smartphones discounts under the Youth Communication Package within three months after their registration, according to an announcement by Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) earlier today. When the package was first announced at the end of 2012, users were given only one month to redeem the rebate.
Dato’ Mohamed Sharil Tarmizi, the chairman of MCMC has also stated that users that already registered back in January will not have to register again if they have yet to redeem their discounts. The agency is now in the process of notifying all registered users regarding the changes via email.
Launched on 1st January 2013, MCMC pointed out that more than 440,000 eligible youths has since registered for the Youth Communication Package and almost 60,000 of them have already redeemed the discount. More information about the discount program are available at komunikasibelia.skmm.gov.my.
