In the new system, the 4 thousand HUF monthly and 48 thousand HUF per year subsidy can be received by households in need, as well as those residents of Budapest who receive a pension or pension-like benefits, who receive an old-age pension or pension-like benefits, but the monthly amount of their benefits is lower than the 100 thousand per month defined around the subsistence minimum HUF threshold. Residents of Budapest who receive benefits exceeding this amount, but less than HUF 170,000 per month, can receive a subsidy of HUF 2,000 per month – HUF 24,000 per year.
In addition to district heating, water, sewage and garbage collection fee subsidies, gas and electricity service fee subsidies are also provided, in the amount of HUF 2,000-2,000 per month.
Households entitled to a HUF 4,000 subsidy per month would thus be able to receive two premium subsidies of their choice, each in the amount of HUF 2,000 per month.
Deputy Mayor Ambrus Kiss said that the utilities subsidy is expected to cost HUF 1.2 billion next year, which will affect approximately 150,000 households.
The water utility assets have not yet been handed over
The Capital Assembly also decided – with 17 yes votes and 8 abstentions – that it would not initiate the free transfer of the water utility assets owned by the capital city government to the Hungarian state by the August 31 deadline set by the Ministry of Technology and Industry.
This was justified by the fact that, as “compensation” for the free handover, the state only undertakes to cover the operating deficit necessary to preserve liquidity in 2022 with a capital increase, whereas Fővárosi Vízművek Zrt. does not need that in 2022. Furthermore, the current conditions of the integration program do not ensure the mid- and long-term maintenance of safe drinking water supply for the citizens of Budapest.
In order for the capital city to hand over HUF 400 billion worth of water utility assets to the Hungarian state free of charge based on the results of the ongoing asset evaluation, it is necessary to obtain adequate guarantees for the maintenance of the infrastructure and the replacement of depreciation in order to avoid the condition of the infrastructure deterioration, which is essential to supply the citizens of the capital with safe drinking water – reads the approved proposal.
