The Ministry of communications of Russia has developed the bill on the translation into electronic format of all notifications from the state to citizens and organizations. It is expected that reports of fines, penalties or the provision of services from government agencies will be through the portal of public services or electronic document management system.
This bill will allow to simplify the interaction between public authorities and citizens, but also to avoid problems in obtaining information on fines. However, in order for the initiative to work, you need to make changes to the Code of administrative offences (Cao), writes “Kommersant”.
The Ministry cited figures that demonstrate that the state is not profitable for sending out notices through the Mail of Russia. Only in 2019, the Russians got almost 600 million notifications on fines and penalties, which cost 22 billion rubles. The most popular is sending out notices of fines to motorists. By mail to motorists in 2019, more than 122 million decisions, each of which is paid on average at the rate of 50 rubles per letter.
According to the Director of group counseling on prospective technology KPMG in Russia and the CIS Sergei floor in this initiative it is necessary to provide technically at what point the letter is considered received. Also to notice was read by the addressee, and not just sent a letter, increasing the risk of additional penalties.
Earlier, the state Duma adopted a law under which motorists can pay fines with 50% discount, even after a grace period of 20 days. This applies to those cases when the ruling comes after an established grace period. Up to this point, the driver, even if the letter arrived after 20 days from the date the penalty is imposed, had to pay it in full.
