The criteria for most Budi Madani rejections

KUALA LUMPUR – The Finance Ministry has announced that the majority of applicants to the Madani Subsidy Assistance Programme (Budi Madani), did not qualify for the programme because they didn’t meet the criteria.

It said that among them were small-scale farmers and farmers who had not been registered with the agencies of their respective ministries.

It added individual applicants who were not approved are advised to check their application status and submit an appeal on the Budi Madani website (

Before submitting the Budi Madani form, farmers and small-scale producers who have not been registered with the agencies of the relevant ministry should do so.

The ministry announced yesterday that over 30,000 applicants have been approved for cash subsidies under the Budi Madani Initiative.

The government said that the recipients would receive the first cash subsidy of RM200 on June 10, through their respective bank accounts. Those without a bank can get the subsidy by bringing their MyKad into any Bank Simpanan Nasional branch in Peninsular Malaysia.

“Eligible applicants may still register for Budi Madani. Applications submitted by June 2024 will be eligible for payment in both June and following months.

Bernama reported that the ministry stated in a press release, “Applications received after June 2024 are only eligible to receive payments beginning in July 2024. June payments will not be included.”

Budi Madani, the government’s initiative to target subsidy allocations to eligible groups such as individuals (Budi Individu), small-scale farmers (Budi Agri-Komoditi), and companies (MySubsidi Diesel), is a way to ensure that subsidies are allocated to those who qualify.

Other than the website, the public can contact the Budi Madani helpline at 1-800-88-2747 / 03-8882 4565 / 03-8882 4566 or email [email protected], as well as visit any Inland Revenue Board (LHDN) offices throughout Peninsular Malaysia.

Budi Agri-Komoditi is available to 68,000 farmers and 8,000 livestock owners, as well as 34,000 small-scale operators in the aquaculture industry.
