As it was stated by the Mayor of Moscow, Sergey Sobyanin, the number of users who prefer electronic services is constantly growing. He stressed that the transfer of state services to electronic format prevents corruption in construction industry.
Transfer of state services in construction industry to electronic format is an important step in reducing administrative barriers.

The term for consideration of applications submitted via the portal of state services does not exceed 10 days, in case of getting ZOS it amounts to 5 days.
