INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - The Minister of Administrative Reform and Bureaucracy Reform (Menpan-RB) Asman Abnur allowed the official vehicle to be used as transportation for Idul Fitri.

"As long as it's official car is not allowed, but this year I said as long as it is used not to use office expenses, please," said Asman met after attending the opening of the 2018 National Development Planning Meeting (Musrenbangnas) in the framework of preparation of the Government Work Plan (RKP) 2019 in Jakarta, Monday 30/4/2018)

Minister Asman said the use of official cars is allowed as long as the cost of gasoline, car maintenance during homecoming, is borne privately.

"It's all borne alone, it should not be charged to the office, it's attached to the same person," said Asman.

It is unclear exactly what official cars are allowed to be used for going home, but Asman says he is formulating official rules related to it.

He promised, a decree concerning it will be issued before Idul Fitri.

Previously, in the era of the leadership of Menpan-RB Yuddy Chrisnandi, the use of official cars forbidden to mudik is operational car service, while for official cars attached to positions such as ministerial ministry cars, Yuddy did not forbid it.
