How Long Can We Expect Tax Refund from Inland Revenue Board (IRB) @ Lembaga Hasil Dalam Negeri (LHDN)?

I read from The Star Online that Inland Revenue Board (IRB) @ Lembaga Hasil Dalam  Negeri (LHDN) stated that all tax refund are processes within 30 days from the e-filing submission.

I submitted my 2013 income tax through e-filing on 17 June 2014. I have tax paid in excess due to my monthly tax deduction through PCB (Potongan Cukai Bulanan). Yesterday (8 July 2014), I received the overpaid tax through direct transfer to my bank account. So, what do you think about the time frame of the tax refund? I would say IRB@LHDN had done a great job to keep their promise. Their efficiency had made many Malaysian smiles. Keep up the good work!
