FAS carefully watches compliance with the fine procedure in the housing-and-utility sector for the population


The Antimonopoly Service exposed a fact of charging St Petersburg residents for a utility service - heating supply by 20 St Petersburg companies under the tariffs that were not set in accord with the law. Thus, the companies independently fixed prices for the population for the heat supply services. In some cases, the prices were overrated.


FAS sent a letter to St Petersburg Tariff Committee requesting to eliminate the violation.


“Prompt actions of the antimonopoly authority helped suppress unlawful actions. On 1 September 2018 tariffs for the population were set for 20 companies”, said Deputy Head of FAS Vitaly Korolev.


“In some incidents, adopting economically justified tariffs enabled reducing utility (heating) payments for the population by 25%”, addedDeputy Head of FAS.


“FAS continues ongoing control – monitoring observance of the indices on changing the size of the residents’ fees for utility services on average by the regions of the Russian Federation and reporting of the regions on the tariff decisions in the housing-and-utility sector”,  pointed out Head of FAS Department for Regulating the Housing-and-Utility Sector, Alexei Matyukhin.
