According to Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng, as reported by Malay Mail, the new e-wallet system will be called e-Tunai Rakyat.

He elaborated,

“Khazanah Nasional Bhd will be making an announcement on the participating e-wallet providers and if the allocation is fully claimed and has successfully boosted spending, the ministry will consider increasing the amount.”

So who will be eligible to claim the e-Tunai Rakyat? Well, if you are a Malaysian, age 18 and above in 2020 with an annual income that is lower than RM100,000, then you will be eligible for it. The only thing you need to do is get your identity verified by participating e-wallet providers of your choice.
