It is free of charge.

7. How do I make a complaint?
You can make a complaint by telephone, in person, in writing, by fax, through our web-site and during our meet the people programs.
8. What happens to my complaint?
Your complaint should contain enough information to allow Ministry Defense Of Malaysia to assess the situation and how best to assist you. We encourage the complainant to provide us their personal particulars include name, contact address and telephone number to enable us to report the progress of the investigation. We can withhold these personal details if requested by complainant.
Tell us clearly what you want Ministry Defense Of Malaysia to investigate. Provide as much documentation as possible include copies or letters or documents that show you have already attempted to resolve the complaint with the agency concerned. Tell us what outcome you are looking for.
9. What happens to my complaint?
Your complaint will be acknowledged promptly.
We will give your complaint careful consideration. In most cases we will telephone the agency or person involved and asks for an explanation. We will write to them to get the necessary feedback and information. Most complaints are resolved at this stage. If the complaint raises serious or complex issues, or if we are not satisfied by the agency initial response, we may undertake further investigation. If for reasons why we cannot take up your complaint, we will explain them to you.
We will keep you informed throughout the investigation.
If we find your complaint is justified, the conclusions are reported to you and the agency concerned. Ministry Defense Of Malaysia may recommend that the agency should reconsider or change its action or decision: that a law, rule or procedure should be changed; and/or that the agency should take any other action that is appropriate in the circumstances.
Ministry Defense Of Malaysia cannot override the decision of agencies, or compel them to comply with our recommendations. However, agencies generally do accept Ministry Defense Of Malaysia recommendations. If they do not and if Ministry Defense Of Malaysia considers that of public interest, we can bring up the issue to the Permanent Committee on Public Complaints chaired by the Chief Secretary to the Government. Decisions made by the Committee have to be implemented. We can also bring matters of public interest to the Cabinet.
10. How long will an investigation take?
We will settle your complaints as quickly as possible. For complicated cases that involve a few agencies, it may take longer to investigate. Our Service Charter sets out our standards of service in more detail.
