KUALA LUMPUR (March 28): Some 3.2 million Bantuan Sara Hidup (BSH) 2019 cash aid applications were received until March 27, involving 530,000 new requests and 2.67 million updated applications, the Dewan Rakyat was told today.

Finance Minister, Lim Guan Eng, said the number is expected to grow based on data entry still being done by the Inland Revenue Board (IRB).

“The information from applicants will be cross-checked with the data at 16 government agencies to make certain only those who qualify receive BSH,” he said. - Bernama
