MOSCOW, July 1 (Itar-Tass) —— Electricity, gas and heating charges grew in Russia on July 1.
Gas charges go up 15%, while electricity, heating, water supply and sewage charges grow by 6%. These are the maximal amounts, and actual charges may vary from one region to another. On the whole, the increase of public utility charges must not be higher than 12%.
Gas and electricity tariffs will be unaltered until July 1, 2013, while heating and water charges will go up again in 2012, by 4% and 6% starting from September 1.
Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak said earlier that the government would be closely monitoring the tariffs in regions and regional authorities would bear personal responsibility. “We need to make an objective analysis of the work of regional authorities for rewarding good work and reprimanding those who fail their commitments year after year,” Kozak said.
The government decided raising public utility charges in summer instead of January last year. In the opinion of the authorities, the decision will curb down inflation. The same formula will apply to the consequent years.
