Well, this has been well publicised in various online portals and hints from newspaper coverage on the opening of the second phase of the Sungai Buloh – Kajang MRT. This time the line extends from Semantan all the way to Kajang. The opening date is already set on 17 July 2017.
The press preview was held today in the Kuala Lumpur Philatelic Bureau HQ. It was very well attended.
The issue will comprise of:
- 60 sen setenant stamps – 304,000 pieces
- 80 sen stamp – 132,000 pieces
- 90 sen stamp – 132,000 pieces

The prices are before GST (currently at 6%).
The launch event for the MRT Phase 2 will start at the Tun Razak Exchange Station. However this is a closed event. The Honourable Prime Minister will then take the MRT to the Stadium Kajang Station. There will be a formal launch event in Stadium Kajang including a Pos Malaysia booth offering a “Tun Razak Exchange” special pictorial cancellation! The event is supposed to be held from 11:00 am to 03:00 pm. The actual timing has yet to be released. The event is organised by MRT and the launching ceremony is a private event. Is it possible to obtain the cancellation in the stadium? Well, why not drop by and check it out.
Great news for Standing Order Deposit Account (SODA) holders! Your FDCs will also be serviced with the Tun Razak Exchange cancellation!
