Government Policy >>>

Obviously, International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Mustapa is not a true politician

No Malaysian politician will make such stupid policy to offend million of rural voters.

I have asked a friend who worked for Puspakom many years ago why scrapping the old car policy cannot be implemented in Malaysia. His answer is Malay folks in the rural will protest strongly.

Therefore, I knew for sure this 15-year old car inspection policy will be scrapped when NAP was first announced.

Govt scraps end-of-life policy for vehicles

KUALA LUMPUR: The Government has agreed to pull back the introduction of an end-of-life policy for vehicles, after taking into account the people’s views and feedback.

Since the announcement of the plan, the Government has received many complaints from the people who were generally not agreeable to the mandatory annual comprehensive inspection as a requirement for road tax renewal for vehicles aged 15 years or older, a statement from the International Trade and Industry Ministry said yesterday.

On Oct 28, the ministry announced the new National Automotive Policy, which included the vehicle end-of-life policy, reports Bernama.

Meanwhile, International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Mustapa Mohamed said the Cabinet had decided to withdraw the policy after getting negative feedback from the public.

“The public, especially those living in rural areas, found this new policy a burden to them,’’ he said.
