The BST will be distributed by state-owned postal company PT Pos Indonesia and the PKH will be distributed by the state-owned banks association (Himbara).

As for the 10-kilogram rice assistance, it will be distributed by the State Logistics Agency (Bulog), given it has networks spread nationwide.

“The distribution has started in stages since last week,” she said, adding that the BST recipients will receive the assistance for the months of May-June at once worth Rp600,000.

Previously, Risma stated that the social assistance is expected to be distributed this week in line with President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo’s directive on the Implementation of Emergency Public Activity Restrictions (PPKM Darurat) in the islands of Java and Bali from 3 to 20 July 2021.
