Transbaikal residents filed 3100 applications for “Far Eastern hectare”
The first residents of the Trans-Baikal Territory received documents as part of the Far Eastern Hectare program. In total, up to now, 3 100 applications have been submitted. 80% of Trans-Baikal residents plan to build housing or develop a personal subsidiary farm, while the rest are going to beekeeping, tourism, and other entrepreneurial activities.
At present, the Far Eastern Hectare program includes 19,7 million hectares, which is 46% of the Transbaikal Territory. Residents of the region can apply for free provision of a land plot on any unoccupied territory, except for border areas, specially protected natural sites, sacred sites, highways and areas necessary for the development of human settlements. Citizens receive the “Far Eastern hectare” for free use for five years and during this period they do not have to pay land tax.
The Far Eastern Hectare program will be implemented in Transbaikalia in three stages. From 1 of August 2019 of the year to 1 of February of 2020 of the year only residents of the region can apply for land. Then, until 1 on August 2020, all residents of the Far Eastern Federal District will have such an opportunity, and after this date, all Russians.
