Since 2017, BB1M 1Malaysia Book Voucher has been replaced by KADS1M. This is a 3-in-1 card which tertiary education students can use it as a Debit card, ATM card, and Discount card. However, the amount of credit given is the same as previously- RM250. Unlike BB1M, getting KADS1M requires more procedure in between.
First of all, students need to visit the official website www.bankrakyat.com.my/bppt fill in their personal details to apply for it. Once approved, you will receive an email from Bank Rakyat for collection. When you collect the KADS1M, documents below are needed for clarification:
- MyKad (original and 1 copy)
- Student ID (original and 1 copy)
- Permission letter from parents/guardian (below 18 years old)
- MyKad of parent/guardian (1 copy)
- Birth certificate (original and 1 copy)
Just by looking at the documents needed for the application process, most students will abort the idea of applying for it. However, some might not give up easily once they get to know the benefits that KADS1M has to offer.
