If you often use the Urban Transformation Centre (UTC) facilities that are available nationwide then take note that they will have new operating hours soon!

Based on a recent report by The Star, the previous operating hours were 8am to 10pm in all 14 locations around the country. However, they are closed on state and federal public holidays and on Fridays, the break time is longer due to the prayer breaks.

For Peninsular Malaysia, the break time will be from 12.15pm to 2.45pm while Sabah and Labuan will have their break hours from 11.30am to 2pm. For those in Sarawak, take note that the break time on Fridays will be from 11.45am to 2pm. There are no break times on other days in the UTC, only on Fridays.

UTCs were a brainchild of the previous government who decided to put different government departments and agencies in one location so that people would be able to settle their affairs in one place. In response to this change of operating hours, former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak has criticised this move on his Facebook and said that the current government should just shut down the UTCs. 

“Why did we decide to keep it open until 10pm? Because we know that there are many working people who are not able to take leave to settle their personal matters during workdays. Thousands of people perform transactions at the UTC every day, especially after working hours. Now, UTCs will be closing at 7pm starting from 1 January 2019. Great. Instead of helping the people, this makes it more difficult for people to handle their affairs. It’s better to close down the UTCs,” he ranted on his Facebook when the news broke.
