The Consumer Squad Card is an identification card issued to volunteers of Friends of KPDNKK. Volunteers can also use the card as a loyalty and discount card to enjoy special discounts at participating outlets.
What is the “Friends of KPDNKK” Programme
Friends of KPDNKK Consumer Squad is set up by the Ministry of Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism (KPDNKK) to assist the government in monitoring the price of goods and services. Registered volunteers are the "eyes and ears" of the government in consumer issues on the ground. They check and report on errant traders, profiteering and business malpractices. Membership is open to all Malaysians above 18 years of age who wish to serve on a voluntary basis. In return for their efforts, these volunteers rewarded with a loyalty and discount card for the privilege to purchase selected goods and service at a discount at participating outlets. As of May 12, 2015, a total of 232,041 consumers have registered themselves as a member of the squad.
The 1Malaysia Discount Card (1MDC)
The 1Malaysia Discount Card (1MDC) is a smart-partnership programme initiated by the government to involve the private sector in providing cheaper goods and services to targeted low income and vulnerable groups of Malaysians. The 1MDC programme is not a new card system but a programme to consolidate several existing cards issued to specific target groups with add-on privileges.
The main feature of the 1MDC programme is the network of participating merchants that offer discounts to cardholders for some goods and services at their outlets.
It was reported that as of June 2015, there were a total 3.5 million cardholders throughout Malaysia under the 1MDC and a total of 2,316 participating businesses.
Currently, there are six types of cards under the 1MDC programme for specific target groups and they are:-
KADS1M for students
1Malaysia Privilege Card (1MPC) for Police Force and Angkatan Tentera personnel by MOF
Ex-Serviceman's Card (KBT) for veterans Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA)
Government Pensioner's Card for retired civil servants by Public Services Department (PSD)
