According to him, there is positive momentum in providing administrative procedures in e-format.
“Since 2013, the rate of issuance of statements of conformity in e-format increased from 33% to almost 98%. First of all this fact shows readiness and willingness of developers to switch to the online format of interaction. Moreover this format will significantly reduce the time of issuance of documentation, corruption risks and it will help to free up a part of the staff, which was previously engaged in execution of documents”, – said the deputy mayor.
