SL1M monthly allowance raised to RM2,000


THE monthly allowance of the 1Malaysia Training Scheme (SL1M) has been raised from RM1,500 to RM2,000 effective yesterday. SL1M chief secretariat Norashikin Ismail said the increment was to help ease the burden of trainees in the federal capital.

“The cost of living in the federal capital is very high…the raise will somehow motivate them to perform better in their tasks,” she told a press conference in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

Last week, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Razak announced the increase during his speech at the Open Interview for SL1M at the Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang. — Bernama
