This article is about Bursa Malaysia that has introduces the new development of the
eCash payment framework. In this article is stated that Bursa Malaysia has extended its
eDividend facility to include all types of cash payments made by listed issuers to their

As mentioned in this article, under the eCash Payment framework, listed issuers are
now required to pay specified types of cash payments as determined by the Exchange, by
directly crediting the same into the bank accounts of their securities holders who have
provided their bank account details to Bursa Depository. Such cash payments include
payments of interest or profit rates on debt securities or sukuk, income distribution by Real
Estate Investment Trust (REIT) or Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) and capital repayment. In
addition, Bursa Depository may also facilitate listed issuers who wish to voluntarily pay other
types of cash payments electronically to their securities holders.
Besides, the securities holders that have not provided their bank account details to
Bursa Depository to receive their cash payments by way of direct credit into their bank
accounts are encouraged to do so through their stockbrokers and be eligible to enjoy the
administration fee waiver accorded by Bursa Malaysia, valid until 18 April 2013. Investors
can obtain the eDividend form and access more information on the process for providing
bank account details from Bursa Malaysia's website.


Exchange holding company, Bursa Malaysia, is extending its eDividend facility to

include a number for cash payments made by listed issuers to their securities holders. The
company, one of the largest bourses in Asia, said that the new features comes amid
encouraging response to its existing facility. At present 80% of the total dividend payments
received by securities holders are made via eDividend.
The main objective of extending the eDividend facility to other forms of cash
payments in addition to dividends is to promote greater efficiency for cash payments made
by issuers to their securities holders. In considering this, the Exchange and Bursa
Depository have taken cognisance of the various comments raised by stakeholders, in
particular the inherent problems arising from payments being made via cheque to securities
holders. Some examples are delays in receiving the cheque via the postal system, lost
cheques and the additional costs associated with the issuing of cheques.
The extension of the eDividend facility to other forms of cash payments is intended to
address the problems arising from cheque payments for these types of payments, with the
net result that securities holders will receive their payments within a shorter timeframe, in a
secure environment and without the need for further action on their part. Issuers also benefit
by being able to streamline their payment processing for most if not all, forms of cash
payments made to their securities holders, utilising an already familiar framework. At the
same time, this initiative is a further step towards the national agenda of migrating to
electronic payments as well as adherence to G-30s recommendation on best practices of a
paperless environment and zero-intervention process.


Here, we can conclude that the development that has been made by Bursa Malaysia
in payment of framework achieved the successful. It said this was part of the strategic
priority to propel the exchange to be the leading marketplace in Asia. Under the eDividend
framework launched in 2010, listed issuers are required to pay cash dividends directly into
their securities holders' bank accounts as provided to Bursa Malaysia Depository Sdn Bhd.
On the other hand, with this eCash Payments, securities holders will be able to
receive their payments within a shorter timeframe, in a secure environment and without the
need for further action on their part. At the same time, listed issuers will achieve greater
efficiency as direct crediting of payments into bank accounts will eliminate administrative
work such as reconciliation of unclaimed cheques and processing of requests for the
issuance of replacement cheques, among others. Bursa Malaysia said a consultation paper
had been issued to seek public feedback on proposals that were aimed at promoting greater
efficiency for cash payments made by issuers to their securities holders.
There are many benefits that will be getting when this ecash payment framework is
practicing in the system of the company. The users especially received the advantages and
had been provided the good service by the company or organizations. The circumstances
that involved the payment activities will be move smoothly and properly using this new
