Netizens complain after Let’s Go Halves registration is full in 10 minutes

The registration under the third phase of the government’s “Kon La Khreung” (Let’s Go Halves) co-payment shopping scheme started at 6pm on Wednesday, with the quota of 1.34 million users filled in a mere 10 minutes, leading to complaints.

 

After the registration was full, the hashtag #คนละครึ่งเฟส3 (#KonLaKhreungPhase3) became a top hit on Twitter, with a numbers of netizens complaining that the quota limit was filled way too fast.

Many users complained that they filled out their applications at precisely 6.01am but had to wait for the one-time password (OTP) to be sent to their mobile phones to complete their registration. When the OTP finally arrived, the quota was already full.

 

Others said it took more than five minutes for the OTP to arrive, which made them miss the window.

 

One user said he registered for three of his relatives, but only one was accepted.

 

Another user criticised the campaign for being “funded by citizens’ tax money, but only grants rights to some, and is nothing more than a PR stunt for the government”.

 

Under the scheme, registered users will get 50 per cent discount on their daily purchases of up to Bt150 per day, capped at Bt3,500.

9.5 Km yesterday, and yes many sitting with cups out in front asking for assistance, then there are the proud families who we have met that refuse to accept help, but when we do bring something by it

Should be an indicator to this Government of how bad the lives of their people really are due to their inactions in providing a proper stimulus to the whole country.  However, there are many citizens

Not a big deal these so call freebies, you can only redeem these coupons at grocery stores and only buy basic consumer food items, no beer or cigarettes of luxury items for a 1,000 baht, how much rice and oil do you really need?...

A spin-off from this scheme for the government / tax department is the exposure of many of the smaller retailers /shops and the under declaring of their true taxable income. 

So any shop who joined the scheme will now be closely looked at regarding what they report as income in the future.

My team were all up early this morning to try and register. Started at 06.00 and no chance.

Not one of them was successful.
