PLEASE NOTE THAT APPLICATIONS ARE NOT YET OPEN
What is KADS1M?
The KADS1M helps students from IPTA and IPTS to minimise their daily expenses. It functions as an ATM, Debit Card and a Discount card
The 1Malaysia Student Discount Card, or as it is fondly know, KADS1M, was established by the Ministry of Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry (KPDNKK) with the objective to help alleviate the expenses of students in institutions of higher learning (IPT) public and private sectors across the country.
