Assalamualaikum w.b.t.,

Hidup di dunia yang sementara ini banyak mengabui mata kita tentang matlamat kehidupan yang sebenarnya. Kita semakin terdesak dengan himpitan kehidupan dan berlumba-lumba untuk mencari kehidupan yang lazimnya lebih menampakkan keduniaa semata-mata.
Apakah ada di antara pelaburan yang semakin hari semakin kurang diberikan tumpuan? Namun, apakah kita menidakkan keperluan yang perlu kita sediakan di dunia bagi persediaan akhirat? Bagaimanakah pula pelaburan di dunia yang wajar dilakukan untuk persediaan akhirat kita? Wajar rasanya kita sama-sama bincangkan dan jadikan maklumat bersama ini sebagai panduan kita merentasi dunia untuk menempah tempat yang selesa di akhirat kelak, insyaallah.

Mekanisma Pemberian Subsidi Petrol? Kenderaan cc < 2000???

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.,

Khabar angin bertiup kencang berhubung kenaikan petrol akan berlaku dalam tempoh terdekat dan dikatakan kenaikan juga agak tinggi. Apakah benar berita ini? Berapakah bakal harga baru petrol akan datang? RM2.00 atau RM2.50 atau RM3.00 atau RM3.70???? Bagaimana pula subsidi petrol akan diberikan? (berita lanjut di bawah).

Sudah pasti kenaikan ini tidak dapat dielakkan seperti mana dinyatakan oleh DS Najib berkaitan pemansuhan subsidi tenaga bakal berlaku (berita: klik sini).

Bagaimanakah persediaan kita dalam ekonomi yang tidak menentu ini? Apa pun perancangan perbelanjaan peribadi atau diri perlu dinilai semula, jika tidak defisit belanjawan akan menjadi lebih parah bagi mereka-mereka yang berpendapatan sederhana ke bawah.

MSTAR: Isnin Januari 18, 2010

PUTRAJAYA Mekanisme berhubung pemberian subsidi petrol kepada golongan sasar yang benar-benar layak menerimanya dijangka diumumkan sebelum 1 Mei ini, kata Menteri Perdagangan Dalam Negeri, Koperasi dan Kepenggunaan (KPDNKK), Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

Beliau berkata ia bagi membolehkan kementerian mendapat maklum balas daripada orang ramai dan mengenal pasti sekiranya ada sebarang kelemahan di dalam mekanisme yang bakal diumumkan itu. "Setakat ini, kementerian masih lagi berbincang dan menjalankan kajian terperinci mengenainya termasuk kemungkinan berlaku sebarang penyalahgunaan," katanya kepada pemberita di sini hari ini.

Sebelum ini, kerajaan dijangka akan mengumumkan mekanisme baru itu pada 1 Mei serentak dengan pemansuhan pemberian subsidi petrol kepada warga asing.

Ismail Sabri berkata antara mekanisme yang sedang dibincangkan ialah mengehadkan jumlah pembelian petrol kepada setiap pengguna yang layak dan pemberian subsidi petrol mengikut jenis kenderaan.

"Kalau mampu beli kereta mewah...takkan untuk beli petrol tanpa subsidi tidak boleh pula," katanya.

Antara mekanisme lain yang dicadangkan termasuklah menggunakan kad pengenalan MyKad untuk menentukan golongan yang layak menerima subsidi itu memandangkan ketika ini hanya MyKad mempunyai kapasiti untuk menentukan status warganegara seseorang.

Ditanya mengenai ada kemungkinan untuk menarik balik subsidi minyak, Ismail Sabri berkata satakat ini kerajaan belum berhasrat untuk berbuat demikian memandangkan rakyat negara ini belum lagi bersedia ke arah itu.

Dalam perkembangan lain, Ismail Sabri berkata mulai tahun ini harga barangan kawalan untuk Tahun Baru Cina akan dilanjutkan sehingga perayaan kaum Hokkien yang jatuh pada hari kelapan perayaan berkenaan.-BERNAMA

New subsidy scheme overlooks fuel efficiency, contravenes revised NAP

By JAGDEV SINGH SIDHU and EUGENE MAHALINGAM

starbiz@thestar.com.my

KUALA LUMPUR: Two leading luxury carmakers have questioned plans by the Government to link the petrol subsidy to engine capacity, saying such a scheme overlooks fuel efficiency and also incentives to manufacturers under the revised National Automotive Policy (NAP).

“As BMW Malaysia views the situation, the problem with designing a fuel subsidy programme around the engine capacity of a vehicle is that small engine capacities alone do not necessarily mean better economy,’’ said BMW Group Malaysia managing director Geoffrey Briscoe in an e-mail reply.

A new fuel subsidy mechanism is set to be announced on May 1 which will see the amount of subsidised fuel based on the engine capacity of a car.

Reports indicate the amount of subsidised fuel would be capped and limited to cars below 2,000cc and owners of cars with engine capacities bigger than 2,000cc would not enjoy the subsidy.

The revamp of the fuel subsidy is being done to lessen the financial burden on the Government, which spends billions of ringgit each year to make petrol and diesel affordable to most Malaysians.

“A new structure, merely based on engine capacity, does not solve any problem,’’ said Mercedes-Benz Malaysia Sdn Bhd in a statement to StarBiz.

Mercedes-Benz Malaysia is advocating the introduction of better fuel quality in the country so that the company would be able to introduce the latest engine technology in its cars, which is already available elsewhere around the world.

“This technology will allow for lower emission and lesser fuel consumption. Both factors would contribute to a more sustainable environment. So, fuel consumption is not just about engine capacity but also engine technology,’’ it said.

Another point Mercedes-Benz Malaysia highlighted was that the upcoming petrol subsidy scheme contravenes the revised NAP.

“The NAP 2009 liberalises manufacturing passenger vehicles with engine capacity of 1,800cc and above and on the road price of not less than RM150,000,’’ it said.

“The implementation of two price structures for fuel may not support this new regulation.’’

While the details are not yet formal, BMW’s Briscoe said should engine capacity be the main criterion for the new fuel subsidy, the move would be another form of “rampant protectionism”.

“As the price of oil varies according to global influences, it is vital that the Government explores alternative means of reducing the overall cost of driving because, as the oil crisis in 2008 demonstrated, there are times when sustaining the petrol subsidy is simply economically unviable,’’ he said.

“A more viable option will be to focus on developing incentives which encourage Malaysian drivers and automakers to consider more fuel-efficient alternatives.’’

He said the Government’s intention to introduce Euro IV standard for diesel by 2011 was one such opportunity for Malaysians to be made aware of the benefits of diesel technology, which include long-term reduction in overall costs.

He said modern diesel engines were able to consume up to 30% less fuel while at the same time, provide 20% more horsepower and up to 70% better acceleration. The engines are also said to emit 20% less carbon dioxide compared with petrol engines.

Datuk Mokhzani Mahathir, who is a shareholder of Porsche franchise in Malaysia, too believes the subsidy system based on engine capacity is flawed.

“I think this is a dangerous precedent where consumers are penalised at the point of sales because of what they have chosen to purchase. The luxury car owner is already penalised via duties, high road tax, high insurance cost, etc,’’ he said in an e-mail reply.

“There are many ways to help car owners. Shifting the burden to the luxury car market shouldn’t be one of them.’’

Mokhzani said if the Government wanted to remove petrol subsidies and yet ensure that those in need of assistance would receive it, the recipients had to be first identified to see if they qualified for assistance such as lower road tax, a discount or rebate on petrol purchase.

This could be done by matching car registration records at the Road Transport Department with employment or Employees Provident Fund records. “Or simply designate various petrol stations for those who are accorded this special petrol price.”
