Higher education minister: RM100 book vouchers will be given in stages

Higher Education Minister (MOHE) Datuk Seri Zambry Abdul Kadir advised students to use the vouchers for beneficial purposes, urging them not to misuse them but to buy scholarly reading materials

The distribution of RM100 book vouchers, benefiting 1.2 million recipients from primary school to tertiary students, will be carried out in stages, said Higher Education Minister (MOHE) Datuk Seri Zambry Abdul Kadir.

Zambry said further details on the voucher distribution mechanism would be disclosed by secretary-general, Datuk Seri Zaini Ujang, later today.

“We might implement it in phases, such as at the university, polytechnic and other levels. We have already convened a meeting, and he (Zaini) will outline the approach or steps to expedite the book voucher distribution,” he told reporters following the MOHE monthly assembly.

“The announcement of the book vouchers was made by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, so it is our responsibility (MOHE) to devise an approach for its timely implementation. The prime minister intends for it to commence this evening,” he added.
