The Serbian Government passed Thursday the Regulation on Vulnerable Energy Customers, which defines the categories of citizens who exercise the right to a reduction in the monthly electricity bill, and for these purposes provided funds in the amount of 1.5 billion dinars (1 euro – 118 dinars), said a Government press release.

“The Regulation primarily covers beneficiaries of the right to cash social assistance and child allowance or increased allowance for assistance and care by another person, as well as households with minimal income. The obligations of local self-governments to submit data on all vulnerable energy customers who can exercise this right to the energy supplier every month have also been determined. These data will be published on the Internet page of the Ministry of Mining and Energy,” said the press release.

“In addition, the Regulation on limiting the price of basic foodstuffs was adopted and amended, which excludes the possibility of approving non-invoice payments during the sale of T-400 flour, in order to prevent deformations in the formation of the prices of the mentioned product and to affect the protection of the citizens’ standard of living to the greatest degree possible,” said the Government.

A decision was also made at the Thursday session to extend the temporary ban on the export of Euro diesel EN 590 until 31 December 2022.
