“Those who registered for PADU can still update their incomplete data” - Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Uzir Mahidin


Previously, we mentioned how over 50% of Malaysians have registered for PADU. Now, the National Chief Statistician says those who have registered for PADU can still update their incomplete details. That said, what should you know about it?

For your information, those who have registered for the Main Data Base (Padu) system can still send incomplete information even after the closing date for registration of the system yesterday. However, Chief Statistician Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Uzir Mahidin said the closing date for Padu system registration remains until yesterday. He also mentioned this during the Ruang Bicara segment on Bernama TV:

"For those who still have information that may not be lost in self-identification (failed identity verification), e-KYC (Know Your Customer Through Digital Platform), the Padu team is helping to ensure that they can send or complete the required information into the system. The only thing we have closed is for those who did not register directly (in the Padu system) from January 2 to March 31,"

In case you didn’t know, PADU system registration closes at 11.59 pm on 31 March 2024. To recap, Economy Minister Rafizi Ramli informed that 17.65 million or 58.7 per cent of the total profile of people, including household members under 18 years of age, were successfully updated in the Padu system.

Meanwhile, Mohd Uzir said that with the existence of the PADU system, the available data will allow the government to make an accurate analysis of those who deserve to benefit.

"The data in the Padu system allows the government to examine things such as how we want to analyze so that the aid pattern does not only take one assessment, one layer only," he said.

Thus, he said that all parties, especially the people, need to be convinced that data is an important tool in moving the country forward and that the cooperation and support of all parties is essential in making this wish come true.
