What Are NKRAs?

GTP 2.0 Addressing Cost of Living

Due to the reactive nature of the COL NKRA programme, the government will continue to further develop and introduce assistance programmes, which are not limited to financial assistance.

Should the cost of living rise substantially and only in appropriate situations. The government is also prepared to reintroduce the flagship Bantuan Rakyat 1Malaysia (BR1M) initiative if the situation calls for further intervention with regard to the price of essential goods and services.

This means the COL NKRA programme is contingent on how the situation develops and as such, efforts undertaken throughout the GTP will also be contingent upon them. We are committed to resolving roadblocks to ensure initiatives are implemented in an effective and efficient manner.

Initiatives such as the Menu Rakyat 1Malaysia, Perumahan Rakyat 1Malaysia, Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia, Kebajikan Rakyat 1Malaysia, Kedai Buku 1Malaysia and Kedai Kain 1Malaysia will continue to be implemented in the GTP 2.0.

  • Klinik 1Malaysia (K1M)

    Expanding and Enhancing Klinik 1Malaysia (K1M)

    • As of December 2012, 168 Klinik 1Malaysia have been established. 

    • This programme will be continued and expanded in the GTP 2.0 to ensure that all rakyat have access to affordable basic healthcare. The clinics provide basic outpatient treatment, and functions as information centres providing health notices such as dengue fever outbreaks and other general medical advice. Since its inception, Klinik 1Malaysia have treated over 4.6 million patients.

    • The target in 2013 is to establish an additional 70 clinics.

  • Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia (KR1M)

    Expanding and Enhancing Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia (KR1M)

    • The aim of these mini-markets is to provide essential goods to low and middle-income rakyat located in urban areas. These mini-markets are operated by local superstore operator Mydin, and emphasises the delivery of basic essential needs such as rice, cooking oil, milk powder and diapers.

    • Products sold in KR1M shops are produced by local small and medium enterprises, and packaged under the KR1M brand. The GTP 1.0 saw the introduction of KR1M as well as the preliminary implementation of two enhancements, which will be completed in the GTP 2.0.

    • The second phase of the KR1M programme will see ‘Mom and Pop’ stores from rural areas distributing KR1M goods in their own district to expand the reach of KR1M products to needy rakyat in rural communities.

    • The third phase will see the KR1M franchise open to the general public thereby creating more business opportunities for the country. There are presently more than 45 KR1M stores nationwide, and the goal is to reach 85 by the end of this year.

    • More information on KR1M products and prices can be found at http://www.1pengguna.com/, which is the Government’s consumer information website.

    • The targets for KR1M is the establishment of 50 stores every year, until 2015.

  • Perumahan Rakyat 1Malaysia (PR1MA)

    More Affordable Housing via Perumahan Rakyat 1Malaysia (PR1MA)

    • PR1MA was established under the PR1MA Act 2012 to plan, develop, construct and maintain affordable housing for middle-income households in key urban centres.

    • While other public housing providers mainly cater for lower income groups, PR1MA will be the first that exclusively targets this middle segment with affordable homes ranging from RM100,000 to RM400,000.

    • Key eligibility criteria:

      • Individuals or Families (husband and wife) with a household income of between RM2,500 to RM7,500.
      • Those working or currently living near the development locations or those planning to live or work there.
      • Individuals currently owning no more than one property
    • PR1MA homes will be allocated through an audited balloting process. A 10-year moratorium will be imposed and homes have to be owner occupied.

    • PR1MA’s target is to build 850,000 homes over a period of 10 to 15 years. The first phase of homes will be launched in key urban areas such as the Klang Valley, Johor Bahru, Seremban, Kuantan, Kuching and Miri.

    • The second phase will focus on suburban areas. For the next three years, PR1MA targets to launch a total of 60,000 units (home and commercial); six new 10,000 unit projects in 2013, seven 20,000-unit projects in 2014 and seven 30,000-unit projects in 2015.

  • Menu Rakyat 1Malaysia (MR1M)

    Expanding Menu Rakyat 1Malaysia (MR1M)

    • This initiative will continue to help low and middle-income earners and students by providing affordable breakfasts and lunches not exceeding RM2 and RM4 respectively for Peninsular Malaysia, and RM2.50 and RM5 for Sabah, Sarawak and FT Labuan.

    • Menu Rakyat is implemented in collaboration with private restaurants and food operators who participate on a voluntary basis. There are presently 2,400 participants of this programme, and the goal is to raise the number to 3,000 by the end of 2012.

  • Kedai Buku 1Malaysia (KB1M)

    Further Defraying the Cost of Education
    Kedai Buku 1Malaysia (KB1M)

    • On 22nd September 2012, the first outlet and the main store of Kedai Buku 1Malaysia (KB1M) was opened at the Urban Transformation Centre (UTC) in Kuala Lumpur. This program will complement the Baucar Buku 1Malaysia programme, namely to alleviate the cost associated with education.

    • Kedai Buku 1Malaysia will provide the opportunity to low and middle-income earners to buy local and foreign published books and stationary at competitive prices compared with regular retail prices. The plan is to open more stores throughout Malaysia, including Sabah and Sarawak.

  • Kedai Kain 1Malaysia (KK1M)

    Further Defraying the Cost of Clothing
    Kedai Kain 1Malaysia (KK1M)

    • Similar to KR1M and KB1M, Kedai Kain 1Malaysia (KK1M) will see textile shops set up under the KK1M brand to offer more affordable fabric, curtains, school attire and some ready-made attire such as baju kurung, baju melayu, batik shirts, cheongsam and kurta for the rakyat. Prices are lower by 50-70% compared with regular retail prices.

    • On 14th July 2012, the first KK1M outlet was opened in Hulu Langat, Selangor, while on 22nd September 2013, the second outlet was opened at the Urban Transformation Centre (UTC) in Kuala Lumpur. The plan is to establish another 30 outlets in Peninsular Malaysia by 2013.

  • Enhancing Food Security via Programmes

    Enhancing Food Security via Programmes

    • Reliance on imported food items including raw ingredients has resulted in the increase of the food bill in overall household expenditure. Malaysia imported RM3.4 billion of processed food in 2011, and has only attained Self-Sustainable Levels (SSL) for a handful of cooking ingredients.

    • The Food and Security Lab has analysed Malaysia’s supply and demand for each category of food, taking into account criteria such as the country’s competitiveness in producing food against neighbouring farming countries.

    • The goal is to reduce the price of raw ingredients by increasing supply. Another factor that affects retail pricing is the number of middlemen within the supply chain that takes a product from the farm to the consumer. The Government has thus established multiple retail points such as Pasar Tani, Agro Bazaar and Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia in an effort to mitigate handling charges.
