What RM100 surcharge, PNB?

If you dont believe me, go to the banks tomorrow (Monday) if you are a subscriber of Amanah Saham Bumiputera (ASB).

As at last Thursday, the charge to change your ASB certificates to new ones only cost you RM2. A day later, it went up to RM100!

I asked the bank officer about it. He said, there was a circular from Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB) to all participating banks to impose the new surcharge.

Why? "Dunno...maybe to offset Maybank's losses of RM470 million in deposit to acquire PT Bank Internasional Indonesia. PNB was hoping returns of about 60 per cent from Maybank should it secures the deal."

Really? But why must ASB investors are made to pay for the losses? Ridiculous!

PNB... give us a good answer!

ALAMAK! WHY IS PNB DOING THAT? THIS IS WORSE THAN BEING RIDICULOUS. HOW MUCH MONEY MORE DOES PNB WNNA MAKE?

pokitiam, KL said...

bro,

nampak gayanya, rakyat sudah mula diperah untuk setiap ringgit yang kita dapat.

kenapakah kerajaan membenarkan ia berlaku?

i dont agree with PNB's move. this is another avenue to supress the rakyat, already having to pay more for daily expenses. they should reconsider this charges, if its true

to offset maybank's losses? what kind of a ruling is this? did bank negara know about it?

what else will go up?

ASAM JAWA, muar said...

ni apa pulak caj RM100 ni? gua punya ASB tak la banyak tapi ada la jugak daripada takda.

kenapa PNB kenakan caj setinggi ini hanya untuk tukar sijil yang ada kepada yg baru? kalau setakat daripada RM2 kepada RM5 tu, kira ok la jugak. ni RM100!

memang melampau kerajaan ni!

PENANAM UBI, marang said...

betul ke, bro? saya tak setuju langsung. ini namanya memeras keringat rakyat yang selama ini mengharapkan pulang yang adil daripada ASB.

sebagai petani, duit ekstra RM98 tu baik digunakan untuk belanja dapur, anak sekolah atau minyak.

sudahkah hal ini dirujuk kepada kerajaan terlebih dahulu. tidakkah ada peraturan yang mewajibkan hal-hal seperti ni diajukan untuk kelulusan pihak berkuasa sebelum dilaksanakan?

yang penting, pak lah tau ke mengenainya?

ANOTHER WAY TO MAKE THE RAKYAT PAY FOR THE HIGH FUEL SUBSIDY?

hj sidek, PJ said...

bro, if you are right, this will be another social issue. PNB has no rights whatsoever to impose higher charges for the certificates.

unless the rise is minimal, it may be acceptable by current investment climate but still, it has to be approved by the government.

being a government GLC, every similar proposal must be put forward to the government before a decision is arrived at.

this tactic is a bully, actually!

KHAN, penang said...

i dont agree.

this is too much.

if PNB sets such a precedent, sooner other investment and financial institutions will follow suit.

PNB must reconsider

orghe tuo, tupak, klate said...

You know bro..NON of the wrongdoings done so far by any politcian, any govt linked corporation or the like HAS EVER BEEN BROUGHT TO BOOK OR MADE TO BE ACCOUNTABLE.

ISNT IT TIME?

HOW LONG WILL WE KEEP STANDING FOR THIS AND JUST LET OFF STEAM?

WE MUST FIND A WAY TO MAKE THEM BE ACCOUNTABLE AND PAY. THE OFFICERS IN CHARGE OF THE DEAL MUST BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE LOSSES AND DEALT WITH BY LAW.

SAMPAI BILA DEPA BOLEH LEPAS MACAM NI? SAMPAI BILA BANG!!!!

thats how our system works, it seems. however, we need someone bold enough (maybe u) to moot the war against this kind of people.

lambat laun kita kena pecahkan jugak 'kebengongan' diorang ni, bro.

cuma, jgn la orang yg kita harap akan jadi teraju baru akan jadi sepi je lepas pegang kuasa...


heheheeh... oppsss!!!
