KUALA LUMPUR (April 10): The Government intends to reutilise the Bantuan Sara Hidup (BSH) data on the B40 group to identify targeted petrol subsidy recipients.

Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister, Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail, said meetings have been held with oil companies, economists, petrol station owners and consumer associations to ensure the implementation goes smoothly.

"The Government also wishes to expand the targeted subsidy initiative to other consumer items enjoying a Government subsidy," he told Dewan Rakyat today. - Bernama
