Armenian government will subsidize the increase in the tariff for diesel fuel for the agricultural sector

Armenian government will subsidize the increase in the tariff for  diesel fuel for the agricultural sector

ArmInfo. On February 22, the  Armenian government approved the program "State support to  agricultural land users for the purchase of diesel fuel at affordable  prices." The subsidy for 1 liter of diesel fuel will amount to 60  drams.

As the Deputy Minister of Agriculture of Armenia Robert Makaryan  stated, the draft proposes to allocate to the Ministry of Agriculture  in 2010 an amount of 360 million drams for subsidizing diesel fuel in  the calculation to 60 drams per 1 liter of fuel with a sales volume  of up to 6 million liters.

Diesel fuel will be sold to land users under the control of regional  administrations by logic up to 200 liters of diesel fuel per 1  hectare of land with a land plot of 3 hectares.

Meanwhile, as the press service of the Agriculture Ministry told  ArmInfo, in 2017 the subsidy for a liter of diesel fuel was 34.4  drams. As a result, the villagers received diesel fuel at a price of  280 drams per 1 liter.  It turns out that even with the subsidy level  approved today, diesel fuel will rise in price for farmers by almost  a third. , - the question, in this  context, is rhetorical. It should be noted that according to the  SCPEC monitoring data, as a result of tax changes since January 1,  2018, the price of 1 liter of gasoline increased by 20 drams, 1 liter  of diesel fuel by 60 drams, and 1 cubic meter of compressed gas by 20  drams.  Nevertheless, at parliamentary hearings on the rise in  prices, deputy head of the State Revenue Committee of Armenia  Vakhtang Mirumyan authoritatively stated that raising the excise tax  rate on fuel can not have a chain effect and lead to an increase in  prices for certain types of goods. In the Ministry of Agriculture  itself, in the person of the Minister, it was stated that a rise in  the price of diesel fuel could not significantly affect the value of  agricultural products.
