Usage of KADS1M (Kad Diskaun Siswa 1Malaysia)


For the past few years, students in tertiary education have been receiving the 1Malaysia Book Voucher or Bantuan Buku 1Malaysia (BB1M) as the government aims to help the students to reduce the burden of academic books cost and others costs.

In 2017, the new KADS1M is replacing the 1Malaysia Book Voucher or Bantuan Buku 1Malaysia (BB1M) which students from public institutions (IPTA) and private universities (IPTS) are entitled to a RM250 assistance which will be credited directly into a Bank Rakyat account on this year. The online application for KADS1M was closed on 31 March 2017.

In addition to the RM250, students will also get discounts when using the KADS1M to buy the products and services that are listed and are subjected to the conditions set by the participating companies and merchants. More information about discounts for products and services, please check in below.
