Today not only marked the beginning of the Phase 2 for the Movement Control Order but also the day where members of the public are able to check if they are eligible for the RM 10 billion financial aid under the Bantuan Prihatin Nasional (BPN) that was announced by PM Muhyiddin Yassin last week.
According to the announcement, members of the public are able to do so through BPN’s official website which is under the responsibility of Internal Revenue Board (LHDN). Given the subject, it is not surprising to see that the website is pretty being overwhelmed by traffic.
We tried to visit the site throughout the day but our attempt proved to futile as we kept on receiving Connection Timed Out error. If you are facing similar experience, worry not though as you can still check you BPN eligibility until 30 April 2020.

In case you name didn’t appear in the database, you also still have until 30 April 2020 to register. So, stay calm and come back again later to check your status. Not to forget, please practice good hygiene all the time and stay home as much as you until the MCO is over, so we have better chance against COVID-19 pandemic.
