FAS assessed the growth of tariffs for housing and communal services until 2023
The Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) made a forecast for an increase in tariffs for housing and communal services in 2021-2023. The increase should not outpace the projected annual inflation.
According to "Rossiyskaya Gazeta", a document explaining the increase in tariffs for the next three years was submitted to the Russian tripartite commission. The forecast applies to all basic tariffs for utilities for both individuals and legal entities.
The maximum increase in electricity tariffs should correspond to the forecast of the country's socio-economic development until 2024. According to Natalia Nevmerzhitskaya, Executive Director of the Association of Guaranteed Suppliers, growth in this segment will not exceed the forecasted inflation rate of about 4% per year.
The cost of gas for consumers will be even lower. According to the calculations of the average price of blue fuel, for all categories of consumers the growth will be 3,11% in 2021 and 3,15% each in 2022-2023. Aggregate utility bills can also only rise by the annual rate of inflation.
Communications, according to FAS forecasts, in 2021 may rise in price by 3,7%, and in 2022-2023 - by 4%. At the same time, the share of communication services in the consumer basket may amount to about 3%.
