PUTRAJAYA, Aug 29 — Communications and Digital Minister Fahmi Fadzil today announced that media practitioners will receive a one-month rebate for their mobile phone bills starting next month.

The Lembah Pantai MP said this incentive is expected to involve more than 10,000 media practitioners throughout Malaysia.

“As a tribute to the 'unsung heroes' that are the media friends who also help to clarify the Rahmah initiative under the Malaysia Madani concept, God willing a Media Practitioner Rahmah Rebate Incentive will be implemented this September.

“All media practitioners who have a Malaysian Information Department media card certificate are eligible for a one-month mobile phone bill rebate,” he said in his speech when launching the programmes here.

He said further details will be announced later upon completion of coordination with telecommunications companies involved such as TM (Unifi Mobile), CelcomDigi, Maxis, U Mobile and YTL Communications (Yes).
