STRATEGIC ASSESSMENT. Jakarta. The number of vehicles registered in the Targeted Subsidy Program for Pertamina Patra Niaga, PT Pertamina (Persero)’s Sub Holding Commercial & Trading, continues to grow. As of July 23, the number reached 220 thousand vehicles.
“Of this total, almost 80 percent of the vehicles registered are types of vehicles that consume pertalite, the rest are users of subsidized diesel,” Pertamina Patra Niaga Corporate Secretary Irto Ginting told the media, Monday, July 25.
Irto continued, people who register their vehicles in the Appropriate Subsidy Program are not only limited to cities or regencies whose registration period has officially opened, but from all provinces in Indonesia.
Seeing the high number of registrants from all regions, Pertamina Patra Niaga some time ago had indeed expanded the registration area to 50 cities or regencies.
“Seeing the support from the community in realizing the distribution of subsidized fuel that is more targeted, Pertamina Patra Niaga will gradually continue to expand the area of the Appropriate Subsidy Program. This expansion is of course accompanied by an evaluation of how the system is ready and readiness in the field in determining which areas will carry out the Appropriate Subsidy Program,” he explained.
To make it easier for the public to register their vehicles, Pertamina Patra Niaga also continues to ensure field readiness in the form of a direct registration booth. This direct registration booth is to help and facilitate public access to register, come directly and will be assisted in filling out data and supporting documents.
“So there’s no need to worry, the direct registration booth will still be provided to make it easier for people who don’t have cellphones or internet access. For those who have it, you can go directly to the subsiditepat.mypertamina.id website or through the Right Subsidy menu on the MyPertamina Application. Just fill in and upload the required documents,” added Irto.
Pertamina also reminded the public that currently registration for the Appropriate Subsidy Program is still open. Purchases of pertalite and subsidized diesel are still as usual and there are no restrictions.
“In the future, the Targeted Subsidy Program will be synergized with the regulation on the distribution of subsidized fuels determined by the government,” concluded Irto.
