In 2021, the Cabinet of Ministers will allocate 150 billion soums to compensate for the seizure of land from individuals and business entities for state and public needs, the deputy of the Legislative Chamber of Oliy Majlis Rasul Kusherbayev said.

According to the people’s representative, the compensation of 150 billion soums will not cover all costs.

  • Tashkent – 600 billion soums
  • Tashkent region – 210 billion soums;
  • Kashkadarya region – 68 billion soums;
  • Surkhandarya region – 56 billion soums;
  • Fergana region – 45 billion soums;
  • Jizzakh region – 43 billion soums;
  • Other regions – 68 billion soums.

At that time, 174 billion soums were planned to be allocated from the state budget and 183 billion soums – from local budgets. In addition, 733 billion soums were to be covered by the allocation of vacant objects and land plots.
