According to him, the Committee on Fuel, Energy Complex and Subsoil Use of the Parliament instructed to consider reduction of the tariff for orphanages, boarding schools, and religious institutions. «First of all, it is necessary to take into account orphanages. The tariff will be revised as part of the development of a new tariff policy,» explained Taalaybek Nurbashev.

In addition, the committee collects information on the number of mosques, churches and other religious institutions. After studying the information, they will be assigned to a certain group of consumers and set a tariff for electricity.
