Marat Khusnullin: 3 more state services in construction to be provided in e-format in 2016
Three more state services related to construction sector will be provided exclusively in electronic format this year, said Marat Khusnullin, Deputy Mayor for urban policy and construction. He noted that this refers to preparation and issuing of development plans of land plots (GPZU), architectural and urban planning designs (AGR) and passports of color appearance.
“The work on facilitation of administrative procedures in construction sector and lowering administrative barriers is ongoing. One of the key issues is transfer of state services to e-format,” said Marat Khusnullin.
According to him, nowadays developers don’t need to submit hard copies of documents to various government agencies in order to get necessary approvals.
“Any government agency has access to all documents via the integrated database,” stressed the Deputy Mayor.
“Today Moscow has 14 types of public services in the field of investment and construction activities, and 12 of them we provide e-format. These arrangements gears up capital flow in the construction industry, and of course it makes the procedure of obtaining public services open and transparent,” said Marat Khusnullin.
“Last year 75% of state services related to construction sector were provided online, this makes Moscow the leader among Russian regions,” added he.
In five years Moscow has boosted its figures moving up from 124th to 51st position in the World Bank ranking; due to the index “Dealing with construction permits” the city has moved up from 179th to 119th position.
Deputy Mayor noted that next year Moscow hopes to move into the top 100 of the ranking.
