With the price increase of fuel, the government came up with a new subsidy mechanism that requires those who own a car to claim this rebate via the Post Office. Since this came in place, post offices have been filled to the brim and sometimes waiting for your turn can be pretty long!
To address this very issue,Pos Malaysia Berhad now allows collection of fuel rebates through its online portal at Pos Online. All you need to do is sign up for a Pos Online account and login with your username and password. Then go to Cash Rebate Online and click on Cash Rebate. Key in your number plate and the other information required. You can then select either Money Order or Bank Account Deposit as your mode of payment.
For the Money Order option, a Money Order will be posted to your registered address within 7 working days of the online transaction. For the Bank Account deposit option, your money will be credited directly into your bank account within 3 working days. For those who renewed their road tax before it expires, you can only perform the rebate transaction online 3 days after the road tax renewal. If you experience trouble with the system, give 1-300-300-300 a ring.
Finally a more practical system for those who really dont have the time during working hours to endure the headache of a que at the Post Office.
