He explained this said during the "10 Minutes with the Prime Minister" weekly program, the governmental website reported. The Head of Government stressed that before to obtain a certificate or a property information sheet, "one had to stand in a long queue, to pay an average of 300 hryvnias as a bribe and to wait for several months to receive this document". The government has changed this system, now such a statement, like a statement of business registration, is available online. According to Yatsenyuk, presently 20% administrative services are provided in an e-form instead of a paper form. Besides, he noted that 250 couples had taken a chance to file an e-marriage application. According to the Prime Minister, local governments are eligible to provide appropriate services directly to the citizens in their native town or village. Yatsenyuk stressed that this would afford local budgets to receive additional revenues. "On average, each region will get from this decentralization of authority UAH 70 to 150 million, depending on the density of population. These are the funds to be spent on social issues, infrastructure development, schools and hospitals," he said.
