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
