PUTRAJAYA will be paying out cash aid of RM300 for low-income earners on January 28 next year, using the same database and method used by the previous government, said Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng.

Previously, Lim said Pakatan Harapan would use a new approach to deliver the aid, rebranded from the previous government’s 1Malaysia People’s Aid (BR1M) to Cost of Living Aid.
