A special coefficient has been introduced into the cost of water to support “Dushanbevodokanal”, and now you have to pay 2.34 somoni per meter for water. From October 15, the price for one cubic meter of water for the population, taking into account a special coefficient, will be 2.34 somoni for the meter and 8.42 – if there are no meters.
The resolution “On tariffs for water supply and sewerage” was signed on September 17 by the chairman of the city, Rustam Emomali. As specified in the State Unitary Enterprise “Dushanbevodokanal”, from October 15, one cubic meter of water will cost 0.78 somoni (0.58 – drinking water + 0.20 – sewage), but you will have to pay 2.34 somoni. “The cost of water will ultimately be 2.34 somoni, taking into account the coefficient 3. Residents who have a meter installed will pay 2.34 somoni per cubic meter for water and sewerage, and those who do not have a meter for one family member will pay 8.42 somoni a month,” the PMU said.
Coefficient 3, according to the source, was introduced to support the “Dushanbevodokanal” State Unitary Enterprise and to regulate prices.
“When meters were installed in houses, and the population began to pay for actually used water in cubic meters, “Dushanbevodokanal” suffered losses. In order to support “Dushanbevodokanal”, the mayor’s office decided to introduce a factor of 3. “, – said Nematullo Abdulloyev, deputy chairman of the “Dushanbevodakanal” State Unitary Enterprise for Economics.
Taking into account this coefficient, commercial organizations, including embassies and diplomatic missions, will pay 6 somoni 73 diram for one cubic meter of water and sewerage. For budgetary organizations, the cost of water will increase from January 2019 – 1 cubic meter of water will cost them 2 somoni 66 dirams.
“Prices have been agreed with the Antimonopoly Service under the government of the country,” the resolution says. The mayor also recommended “Dushanbevodokanal” to refrain from loans.“In the future, the SUE should, as far as possible, refrain from loans in foreign currency with interest, and establish activities with the help of the enterprise’s funds,” the decree says. Prior to that, the population paid 0.625 somoni for one cubic meter of water, budget organizations 1.97 somoni, and commercial organizations – 5.38 somoni. Also, according to the decree, the “Dushanbevodakanal” State Unitary Enterprise was instructed to ensure the installation of water meters for 55% of the capital’s population by the end of 2018 and by November 2019 – more than 85% in order to settle for the actual consumption of drinking water and the use of sewage systems. According to the State Unitary Enterprise “Dushanbevodakanal”, as of August 31, a total of 98366 meters were installed in the capital, including 88331 meters for the population, 8699 commercial organizations and 1366 budgetary organizations. If you count it as a percentage, it will be approximately 47%. As reported to “AP” in the State Unitary Enterprise “Dushanbevodakanal”, meters for the population will be installed free of charge.
