RRIMniaga Application Procedure Briefing Session at The Kelantan State Level

The Malaysian Rubber Board (MRB) organised a briefing session on the RRIMniaga application usage procedure at the Kelantan state level, held at the Kuala Krai Regional Consciousness Hall, Kelantan on 29 September 2020.

150 participants attended the programme which was officiated by Mr. Ramli Osman, Head of the Research Extension Unit, MRB. The programme was held in compliance with 'new norms' according to the Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) set by the National Security Council (MKN) in an effort to reduce the risk of COVID-19 infections.

Participants were briefed on the procedure for using the RRIMniaga application by MRB officers and staff present. RRIMniaga application is a smartphone application developed by MRB for the purpose of recording transactions of buying and selling rubber by MRB licensed rubber dealers. The main objective of RRIMniaga is to obtain the latest data on smallholder production, productivity and local farm level production through licensed rubber traders. These data can be obtained directly online, as a means of replacing the conventional method through the use of official receipts and rubber record trading books that require both time and manpower.

RRIMniaga applications can also be connected directly to the Rubber Transaction Authority Permit (PAT-G) data system. Smallholders will benefit from the Rubber Production Incentive (IPG) claim process without going through the conventional process as this application is integrated with the IPG System.

Smallholders no longer need to go to the MRB office to make an IPG application because the IPG will be channeled directly to the applicant's bank account after going through the current review procedure and the IPG activation price announced by MRB the following month.

On 30 September 2020, the RRIMniaga Application registration session on the licensing gadget was conducted in the presence of 30 rubber trade license holders at RRIMINIS LGM Gua Musang, Kelantan. The licensees present were given guidance on the use of RRIMniaga applications by MRB staff from state offices and headquarters.

Attendees adhered with the SOPs, registering via the MySejahtera app.
