Sebauh now has mobile banking


SEBAUH: Utilities Minister Datuk Seri Dr Stephen Rundi Utom welcomed the Sarawak government’s initiative in providing mobile banking services in rural areas, especially in Sebauh.

With the service, residents did not have to get police permits to go to Bintulu to do their banking during the movement control order (MCO).

Rundi, who is also Kemena assemblyman, added that banks were awaiting approval for their automated teller machine (ATM) services in Sebauh.  

“On behalf of the people of Sebauh, I would like to express my deepest appreciation to Bank Rakyat, Bank Simpanan Nasional (BSN) and the Sarawak government for providing such services in Sebauh,” he said after visiting the Bank Rakyat mobile bank at the Tebingan Sebauh Bank car park here today.

Operating in Tebingan Sebauh, the mobile banking services will be available every Tuesday for Bank Rakyat and every Thursday for BSN.

The services are implemented through the Sarawakku Sayang Special Assistance (BKSS) package with an allocation of RM1.6 million.

For a start, four local banks, namely, BSN, RHB Bank, AgroBank and Bank Kerjasama Rakyat Malaysia will be involved in providing the services.
