The protracted crisis has hit the Russian families. To save the government decided not even the smallest citizens of our country. So, this year’s maternity capital for the first time were not indexed and remained at the level of 2015 — 453 thousand rubles.
However, it is to undermine parents and their kids officials did not dare and generous to a one-time payment of 25 thousand rubles. Moreover, the government was said about the transition to a selective method to provide maternity capital taking into account the needs of families.
Will there be enough money in the budget for the indexation of matkapital “MK” asked the Director of the Institute of contemporary economies Nikita Isaev:
Maternity capital – a thing necessary and effectively working. We just started out of the demographic pit in 2013 was recorded natural population growth for the first time in 22 years). But again the crisis came, and the curve of the birth rate began to decline: in January – July the number of births is 1.4% less than in the same period of the previous year. So any measures aimed at maintaining fertility, good: more and more people are not guided by instinct, common sense, thinking about how will their children to raise on his feet. For dominance in a reasonable society it is encouraging, but the state is more interesting. Numerical population growth will help economic growth, reduce the burden on the Pension Fund. But that will not be soon. Generation of newborns still need to grow, but no money now. Sources of funding additional measures to maintain maternity is now unknown. First you have to understand where to get funding at previous levels of expenditure, and that 807 billion for the period 2016 – 2018. So it looks more real not the expansion of the use of the parent capital, but rather a reduction. We first created an information field, showing the good intentions of the government, and then quietly, as is often the case, will take nearly opposite action. Judging by the state budget, such a possibility is high”.
