One million PTPTN defaulters may fly after June 15, says Education Minister

Author:   |    Publish date:


PUTRAJAYA, May 31 — Education Minister Maszlee Malik today announced that his ministry is working to lift the travel ban on an estimated one million National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PTPTN) defaulters next month.

He indicated that the ban may be lifted by June 15. 

“The process to remove defaulters from the blacklist will be executed in phases between May 24 and June 15.

“Should any of you face trouble at the airport, please contact our officers there,” he told a news conference here.

PTPTN chief executive Wan Ahmad Wan Yusoff, who was also present at the news conference, said the travel blacklist dated back to 2000.

“Some of them paid but stopped after a while, and some never did start paying,” he said.

To date, he said PTPTN has collected about RM1 billion from debtors.

Maszlee also said fresh graduates who owed PTPTN but currently earn RM4,000 or below need not remit payment until a proper mechanism was in place.

“We are studying this at the moment and we will take this into consideration as we are currently struggling to clean the dirt caused by the previous administration,” Maszlee said when asked if this could result in accumulated interests.

Maszlee added that his ministry will deliver all promises made in the Pakatan Harapan election manifesto based on priorities, without elaborating on how it planned to do so and the timeframe.

Sami_Value the blacklists, they still allow them to fly....
31/05/2018 2:25 PM
harpluck I been paying but now I think it's wiser to stop paying. At this rate, one day they will waive all my loans so there's really no reason to pay it off.
31/05/2018 2:33 PM

One day, when your family member from younger generation cannot borrow, your are partly responsible for it.

--> But inflation is more significant than the interest + admin fee. I think CCRIS takes into account of overall rather than one debt, so it won't harm.

One day, when your family member from younger generation cannot borrow, your are partly responsible for it.

--> If I save that up, I'll be able to afford their education. I don't know if I will stop paying but I am saying the way they treat this loan is telling the public that paying back is a foolish thing to do.

KLCI King Idiotic move, encourage young generation to default what they supposed to pay.

lizi Not all ph policy is good....example of bad one are GST abolishment and PTPTN..

Pavillion Yes loan must pay but you do not understands how they get there in the first place...i.e. if they unable to find decent job after several year...ptpn would required them to pay certain % backdated payment plus new installment..that is big amt for them....by then they already having family on their own etc. And how about if their job require them to travel...i.e. tour guide. I feel blacklist them from travelling overseas..is abuse of power and a lazy solution.

kiasoocheena they should pay, either now in a small amount or later pay in big amount when they are earning big. Either way, encourage them to be a responsible citizen, not the lazy one and not dodge the loan which they took it with enough conscience of paying back. If you encourage them not to pay, in the future it will backfire on PH as they tend to switch to whichever government says they will waive it...now the national debt is already high so start paying.

KillBuffett Should have a system like AKPK, and fix some percentage of thier salary and make them to pay monthly. When US students graduate, they will work hard just to repay their student loan, and sometime it cost them hundred thousand USD. SO please, repay your loan.

---> then the solution should be restriction unless a business travel letter is presented.

Sami_Value PTPTN officers are not as cruel as how the public painted the image la, if you haven't deal with them, don't just jump to conclusion like they are akin to loan shark debt collectors.

If you never talk to them before & already jump to conclusion, it is very unfair to PTPTN. My experience with them was a pleasant one.

Just talk to them, they are not the unreasonable type and don't give the excuses for not paying.

---> I deal with a handful of them before, having sign my papers wrongly.. What can I say? They are more kind than NGO's volunteers. And I am not their race, in-case you assume there was racial-bias.
