The offer is valid for a period of three months starting in the same month the approval of the application is given by PTPTN and two months ahead between December 2021 and May 2022. 

Deferral approval will be notified to the borrower via email within three working days from the application date. 

On the other hand, borrowers are also reminded to update their latest and accurate contact information to ensure that the approval information of the deferment application can be communicated to them.
