Neverov: the free privatization will be extended by a year
According to him, at the end of the a week ago of the meeting was taken they decided to extend the free privatization for another year – until March 2017. “There are still other offers – total privatization in 2017 to complete, but save the exception for certain categories of citizens, including for orphans. There is another idea to pursue privatization without limits,” – said Medvedev.
“Let’s talk it over and over a year to finally decide what to do,” he concluded.
Medvedev also discussed the issues of investment in the housing sector. He noted that, despite the difficult situation, the demand for services in this field will be always “for obvious reasons”. “So, for many entrepreneurs today, it is real chance to earn money when other sectors are compressed”, – said the head of government. He cited data of the Ministry that in 2015 more than 270 signed concession agreements in the housing sector, “it is expected that total investment will exceed 100 billion rubles.”
In General, it is obvious that to extend these deadlines indefinitely is impossible because the Institute for privatization is due to the fact that the vast majority of apartments that were created in 1991, belonged to the citizens under a contract of employment of social order
