Pay cuts over PTPTN loans

PUTRAJAYA: National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PTPTN) borrowers in the civil service will be subjected to mandatory pay deductions, starting with Public Service Department (PSD) officers this September.

PSD director-general Tan Sri Mohamed Zabidi Zainal said his department should be a leading example to other government agencies by implementing the compulsory salary deductions first.

“The PSD should set an example to all other civil servants, that its staff are willing to pay their PTPTN loans.

“As we have the Hari Raya celebrations coming up, we expect to implement mandatory pay deductions in September,” Mohamed Zabidi told a PTPTN briefing session for PSD staff here.

He said there are 480 PSD officers who would be subjected to the pay cuts when the initiative kicks off in September.
