KUALA LUMPUR, March 30 — Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob today said that the National Security Council (NSC) have decided to allow 100 per cent capacity for the private sector effective April 1 in conditional movement control order (CMCO) areas.

However, he said the Public Service Department (PSD) will decide on the capacity for the public sector. 

“The presence of private sector employees for management and operations/support groups in CMCO area will be allowed 100 per cent starting from April 1, 2021.

“The attendance of public service employees is based on the circular/instruction of the Public Service Department (PSD),” he said during a press conference this evening. 

Ismail added that Ministry of International Trade and Industry’s earlier instructions were hard to be observed as working remotely especially for industry that involved manufacturing as the employees need to work simultaneously.

“Manufacturing operations often involve complex and technical processes with the presence of different teams consisting of management staff and supervisors. 

“At the same time, they are required to work simultaneously. Revocation of this condition will give the company the opportunity to operate at the maximum level,” he added.
