KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 14 – Malayan Banking Bhd (Maybank) has been authorised to facilitate the renewal of Amanah Saham Nasional Bhd (ASNB) account books which had been lost or damaged in recent floods on working days from tomorrow until Feb 13.
The Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB) Cares Squad, comprising ASNB officers, will assist selected Maybank branches in the exercise in Kelantan, Terengganu, Perak and Pahang, which were severely affected by the floods recently. PNB president and group chief executive Tan Sri Hamad Kama Piah Che Othman said the squad would help verify documents and approve transaction forms of unit holders for the account book renewal.
“PNB sympathises with the plight and hardship of ASNB unit holders who were affected by the floods, and the difficulties faced by them in renewing their lost or damaged account books. “Therefore, we truly hope that by authorising a number of Maybank branches to assist unit holders in renewing their account books, we could ease their worries and burden,” he said.
The renewal of lost or damaged ASNB account books in Kelantan can be made at Maybank branches in Gua Musang, Kuala Krai, Rantau Panjang, Tumpat and Tanah Merah. In Terengganu, they can be renewed at Maybank branches in Kemaman, Dungun and Kuala Berang, while in Pahang (Maybank branches in Kuala Lipis, Jerantut and Temerloh), and Perak (Maybank branch in Kuala Kangsar).
As announced on Jan 2, ASNB unit holders, who were affected by the floods, are entitled to a RM20 fee waiver, including a stamp duty, for the renewal of their account books until March 31, 2015. To qualify for the exemption, unit holders must present their identity card (MyKad) and a police report verifying their status as flood victims, while those who lost their MyKad are required to present relevant documents from the National Registration Department.
