What Are NKRAs?

GTP 1.0 Raising Living Standards of Low-Income Households

Under the GTP 1.0, the Raising Living Standards of Low Income Households (LIH) NKRA achieved great strides in meeting its objective of reducing the disparity between the economically advantaged and the disadvantaged. Above and beyond moving affected households into higher income categories, initiatives under the LIH NKRA paved the way for the start of a new cycle of a better quality of life for the country’s poor and extreme poor.

    • In order to ensure effective delivery of aid and support of low-income households, the e-Kasih programme was established. e-Kasih is the only designated database to monitor and manage these households. An extension of e-Kasih is the 1AZAM (Akhiri Zaman Miskin) programme, which focuses on providing economic opportunities that enhance the productive capacity of low-income households to move them out of this category in a sustainable manner.

    • Some of the highlights of the e-Kasih and 1AZAM programmes include:

      • 317,359, or 96%, of back-log cases pertaining to e-Kasih verification processed
      • Facilitating the participation of63,147 poor households in the1AZAM programme, exceeding the target of 57,793 households
      • Provide Insurance scheme for LIH covering death and critical illnesses
