Central Database Hub or Padu is now live

PUTRAJAYA: The national Central Database Hub (Padu), which is a system containing individual and household profiles encompassing citizens and permanent residents in Malaysia, is now live.

The platform was launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim today.

Malaysians will have until March 31 to update their details on the platform.

The objective of Padu is to provide a safe, comprehensive and near real-time national central database that enables more accurate data analytics to be produced as well as for policy formulation and data-driven decision-making processes, besides enabling targeted policy implementation to balance the fiscal position.


Padu will act as a national database of socio-economic information for every household in the country, providing regular analytics with a comprehensive store of data updated in “near real time”.

The development of Padu is intended to allow for data-driven policymaking and decision-making, while enabling targeted policy implementation.

The system has been in development since June this year, and will see integration with MyDigital ID, the country's national digital identification system at a later date.
