I suggest going back to the company and asking them for RM9k basic before allowances

Why do HR do this?
1. the salary range for that position maxes out at RM8,500 so the only thing they can do is add the allowance

2. they're being sneaky and assuming you're talking about RM9k all in, not RM9k basic before allowances

3. something else nobody can guess unless you go to talk to the hiring manager yourself

In short go talk to them, the worse the can say is no so it's status quo. The best is they agree to your requirements. Anything else in between is still a win

Allowances can be cut yes, but I've not experienced that across 15+ years and 5+ companies. No differences in terms of EPF or taxation, allowances are considered gross income and will be subject to both. You're above the limit for EIS so your allowances won't make a difference either

All the best
