Khumbudzo Ntshavheni, The communications and digital technologies minister has announced a new deadline for the qualification for South Africans to register for the government-subsidized set-top boxes. The new deadline is now 30th September.
Tomorrow, I will publish a government gazette, a public notice of 30 September 2022 as the closing date for applications and registrations for government subsidised set-top boxes for qualifying indigent households.
We need to clarify the following: that 31 October 2021 deadline was provisional or soft deadline as qualifying households could still apply for STBS after the switch off. However, 30 September 2022 is the final deadline, and no applications will be considered after this date.”Minister Khumbudzo Ntshavheni, Communications and Digital Technologies
