KUALA LANGAT: The Education Ministry has started disbursing the RM100 allowance to some 5.5 million school students in schools nationwide.
Its minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, said the monies were currently being deposited in the schools' Bank Simpanan Nasional savings account.
The allowances are currently given to students from Year One up to Form Four of the 2011 session, the Deputy Prime Minister said.
"Allowance for students entering Year One and Form One of the 2012 session will only be given in January next year because we do not know which school they would go to," he told reporters when visiting lecturers and students at the Selangor Matriculation College here Thursday.
