Govt ready to extend SOCSO scheme to farmers – Mahfuz

PADANG TERAP, Jan 13 (Bernama) � The government is willing to extend the Self Employment Social Security Scheme under the Social Security Organisation (SOCSO) to farmers.

Deputy Human Resources Minister Datuk Mahfuz Omar said this follows the lukewarm response to the scheme which was previously offered to taxi and e-hailing drivers.

He said so far only 10 per cent of about 100,000 taxi and e-hailing drivers were registered and contributing to the scheme.
