MOSCOW, October 19 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian Federal Service of Bailiffs plans to introduce SMS notification for debtors beginning next year, the chief of the service, Artur Parfenchikov, said in an interview to Itar-Tass.
Last year, the service signed an agreement with the three major companies providing mobile telephone services that at the authorities' request the companies will give telephone numbers of users and the information about two-month payments.
Bailiffs plan to begin to send mass SMS messages to debtors next year. The pilot project has been introduced in three regions – Vladimir, Nizhny Novgorod and the Moscow Region, where such SMS messages are already sent.
The task is to introduce a federal standard of such notification beginning January 1, 2014, the official said.
The service is needed and acceptable. "You do not object that you are just reminded that you have a debt, do you?" he noted. Some are so busy that they just forget that they, for example, violated the traffic regulations and so on. A notice is sent that the person is a debtor, and the one can also find his name in the website, he said.
