Chisinau, 13 July /MOLDPRES/ - The tariff for the servicing of lifts in the Moldovan capital has been increased by 80 per cent starting from 1 August 2022. The Chisinau Municipal Council (CMC) adopted a decision to this effect.
So far, the tax paid for this service has been of 15 lei for one person and beginning with the next month, it will be 27 lei.
