In 2015 pension increase will not be categorized and all pensioners will get increased pensions, Finance Minister Nodar Khaduri told journalists after the meeting between the PM and the parliamentary majority, which was also attended by the Minister of Finance. He introduced next year’s budget parameters at the meeting.
“Today we’ve talked about many issues, including pensions. The government provided information to the majority that from 1 September pensions will be increased by GEL 10 for all categories of pensioners, meaning there will not be categorized increases. The increase process will also continue in 2016,” – he said.
According to Khaduri, the budget parameters were increased at the expense of taxes.
“Economic growth was reflected in the budget’’, – Khaduri said.
