What is administrative cost?
Administrative cost is the cost charged on loans as specified in the signed agreement. The administrative cost will be calculated 6 months after completion of studies or termination of loan, whichever is earlier. An annual rate of 4% will be imposed for the repayment period up to 31 December 2003. From 1 January 2004, the rate was reduced to 3% and is calculated on the balance of the monthly loan. This cost cannot be reduced.
Will PTPTN issue an official receipt for loan repayment?
PTPTN will issue an official receipt only for repayment made directly to PTPTN, e.g. at the PTPTN counter, by post (cheque, bank draft, money order and postal order) made payable to PTPTN. For payments via PTPTN collection agents like the IRB, Maybank (online), BCBB (online and counter), Bank Islam (online and counter) and RHB (online), no receipt will be issued. The IRB will issue a receipt for payment made directly to it (besides salary deduction).
