Bantuan Rakyat 1Malaysia (BR1M) recipients who do not own a car can use the aid to purchase a Proton Iriz in order to generate income as drivers of ride-hailing services like Uber, said treasurer-general Mohd Irwan Siregar Abdullah.

"This will be implemented this year," he told a press conference in Putrajaya today.

Irwan said the government is also studying other methods to improve the implementation of the BR1M cash aid.
