Ministry of Internal Trade: Many buyers still do not use the MySejahtera app



PUTRAJAYA (Bernama): Many buyers in Putrajaya still do not use the MySejahtera app to register their presence in retail businesses and monitor their compliance with standard operating procedures (SOPs), said the secretary general of the Ministry of Internal Trade and Consumer Affairs, Datuk Seri Hasnol Zam Zam Ahmad.

He drew the conclusion after seeing that many shoppers still register their presence manually, during inspections at several retail stores, including the IOI City Mall here on Tuesday, May 25.

“I urge everyone to use the app as it has many advantages, including facilitating contact tracing and communications,” he told reporters.

On Monday, May 24, Home Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi said the two-hour shopping time limit in retail stores would be monitored through the MySejahtera app, which would make it easier to task of ministry staff or point of sale staff to carry out checks if necessary.

The purchase time limit was part of the stricter Movement Control Order (MCO) 3.0 SOPs that went into effect today to curb the spread of Covid-19 infection in the country.

Hasnol Zam Zam said buyers who have spent more than two hours in retail premises will face compounds for violating SOPs.

He said the two-hour limit was reasonable and allowed customers to plan their shopping activities accordingly.

Hasnol Zam Zam also praised the efforts of the management of IOI City shopping center to issue attendance stickers with the time and date to its customers.

Its security manager, Mohamad Abu Talib, said that in addition to using attendance stickers, staff would manually record details of customers having issues with their MySejahtera app.

“In the mall, auxiliary police personnel and customer service personnel will monitor shoppers. If they exceed the deadline, we will ask them to leave the premises politely, ”he added. – Bernama
