RM50 pocket money limit

KOTA BARU: The state Road Transport Department (JPJ) has ordered some of its personnel not to carry more than RM50 as pocket money while performing official duties.

The requirement is for now confined to enforcement division officers, road examination testers and clerical staffers.

State JPJ director Abdul Ghani Che Kassim said a daily record keeping would be done by a specially formed in-house panel, which would oversee the implementation of the requirement.

The JPJ officers would be subjected to daily spot checks, he said after receiving six new enforcement vehicles at its state headquarters here yesterday.

“We will give leeway if they exceed the RM20 requirement. However, the maximum is RM50. Anything above it, they must explain,” he said.

Abdul Ghani said such a requirement would be implemented at all JPJ offices nationwide, but probably in stages.

He added that the requirement had been implemented in Kelantan since Jan 1.

“We have to maintain the reputation of JPJ. In Kelantan to date, no JPJ officers are under investigation by the Anti-Corruption Agency and we want this to continue,” he said.

Abdul Ghani also advised JPJ officers to report those who attempted to bribe them in order to show the department’s seriousness of maintaining a clean image.
