The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

THE Ed­u­ca­tion Min­istry has ap­plied for an al­lo­ca­tion of RM479.36 mil­lion from the gov­ern­ment to up­grade the more than 20-year-old wiring sys­tem in 2,086 schools na­tion­wide. Its deputy min­is­ter Datuk Chong Sin Woon said the re­quest for ap­proval was made through the Rolling Plan 2 and when ap­proved, the project would be im­ple­mented in the 11th Malaysia Plan (2016-2020). “The Ed­u­ca­tion Min­istry is aware of the risks these schools face from hav­ing a wiring sys­tem that is over 20 years old.” – Ber­nama
