40,000 subscribers have not yet received vouchers from the Government of Georgia
Georgian Deputy Director of Social Services Agency David Dvalidze has reported that 40,000 citizens were unable to obtain vouchers for electricity and food prices.
According to the "Business-Georgia", Dvalidze underlined that in general, this happened mainly due to the usage of common counters for the subscribers, as well as to the lack of documents required for documents registration.
At the same time, he also noted that the cashing of vouchers will continue until the end of August.
Earlier, Georgian authorities reported that in order to help to pay utility tariffs, the government had decided to distribute the public vouchers worth 20 lari. This amount should go to pay for the cost of electricity consumed.
Vouchers will receive only those subscribers who for the last 6 months have spent 200 kilowatts of electricity.
After this, the authorities also announced the distribution of such vouchers cost 30 lari for the purchasing of food.
