The Cabinet of Ministers prolonged the permits for transporting passengers in taxis
Taxi permits, expiring this year, as well as a number of other licenses have been automatically renewed for one year. The corresponding decree was signed by Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin. This was reported by the press service of the Cabinet on Tuesday.
“Permits for carrying passengers in taxis as well as agreements on water use, which expire from March 15 to December 31, 2020, are automatically extended for 12 months. The decision also applies to permits for the use of water bodies and conclusions on the educational and material base of driving schools”, said the report.
The press service had also recalled that back in April, the Government had renewed a number of licenses and permits, including for the construction, drug production, communication services and broadcasting. “The same decision was made with regard to the accreditation of health workers and legal entities involved in transport security. A set of measures to reduce the regulatory burden will lower the costs of organizations against the background of the current epidemiological situation”, added the press-service.
