KUALA LUMPUR – The government has decided to postpone the National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PTPTN) scheduled salary deductions.

“The PTPTN repayment scheme scheme will be suspended for the time being until we receive the collective inputs and feedback from all stakeholders,” said the Minister of Education, Dr Maszlee Malik in his latest tweet.

The scheduled salary deductions scheme announced by the Chairman of PTPTN Wan Saiful Wan Jan two days ago received substantial criticisms from the public as it was seen as cruel and burdening.

Through that scheme, a borrower with a monthly income of RM2,000 and above are required to have their salaries deducted between two to fifteen percent.

Most of the borrowers were disappointed and enraged with PTPTN for not conducting thorough research and considering the other commitments of the borrowers of the education fund.

The disparagements on the scheme were highlighted by both the members of Pakatan Harapan and the oppositions. -MalaysiaGazette
