Malaysian Government Declares Additional Public Holiday and Toll Exemptions for Hari Raya Aidilfitri

The Malaysian government has announced an additional public holiday in conjunction with the upcoming Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebration. The announcement was made by Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim at a press conference in Putrajaya.

According to Anwar, the additional holiday will be declared on April 24 (Monday) if the first day of Hari Raya falls on April 21 (Friday). However, if the first day of Hari Raya falls on April 22 (Saturday), the additional holiday will be declared on April 21 (Friday).

Anwar emphasized that the additional holiday would make it easier for people to plan ahead of the celebration and make the journey back to their home towns.

In addition to the public holiday, the government has also announced toll exemptions for all highway users from April 19 to 21, and April 24. The toll exemptions will be applicable on 13 highways and for all classes of vehicles. Anwar stated that this move will reduce the cost of paying toll for those who are returning to their home towns to celebrate Aidilfitri, and make it easier for them to plan their journey.

Moreover, the government has also announced a special rate of RM50 for members of the public to settle traffic summonses issued before 2023. This special rate will be applicable from April 21 to May 21, and aims to reduce the burden of traffic summonses on the public.

Works Minister Alexander Nanta Linggi will be announcing further details regarding the toll exemptions.

This move by the government has been welcomed by many Malaysians, who are looking forward to celebrating the Hari Raya Aidilfitri with their loved ones.
