De­tailed in­for­ma­tion on this is­sue was pre­sented by the Min­is­ter of Con­struc­tion of the Repub­lic Ab­dukah­hor Tukhtaev, an­swer­ing in de­tail the ques­tions of lower house mem­bers.

In 2018, the con­struc­tion of 335 multi-storey build­ings with al­most 14 thou­sand apart­ments was planned. Also in ac­cor­dance with the in­struc­tions given dur­ing the trip of the head of state to the re­gions, the con­struc­tion of an ad­di­tional 90 houses was de­ter­mined. Of these, 79 apart­ment build­ings were com­mis­sioned. Con­struc­tion and in­stal­la­tion works are un­der­way on the rest of them.

At the same time, in ac­cor­dance with the de­cree of the Pres­i­dent of the coun­try for 2018, the con­struc­tion of 16,360 af­ford­able res­i­den­tial build­ings was de­ter­mined. Of these, 5,942 com­pleted con­struc­tion and in­stal­la­tion work, they were com­mis­sioned.

In ad­di­tion, those at the Gov­ern­ment Hour stated that, de­spite the im­ple­men­ta­tion of large-scale re­forms, the pro­vi­sion of a num­ber of ben­e­fits to con­struc­tion or­ga­ni­za­tions, there are many draw­backs.

The deputies ad­dressed se­ri­ous is­sues re­lated to the pro­vi­sion of hous­ing for the pop­u­la­tion, the qual­ity and timely com­ple­tion of con­struc­tion work, is­sues re­lated to the cre­ation of in­fra­struc­ture in the ad­ja­cent ter­ri­tory of houses un­der con­struc­tion in the re­gions, as well as is­sues of con­cern to the pop­u­la­tion. The sub­ject of dis­agree­ment of the deputies was the fact that so far 4,539 res­i­den­tial build­ings, whose con­struc­tion was planned in Tashkent, Sirdarya, Navoi and Khorezm re­gions, have not been com­mis­sioned.

Ac­cord­ing to par­lia­men­tar­i­ans, the de­sire of lo­cal hokimiy­ats for the early ful­fill­ment of in­struc­tions in the mat­ter of hous­ing con­struc­tion and the pro­vi­sion of pos­i­tive statis­tics in re­ports leads to a num­ber of short­com­ings. Care­less at­ti­tude to work, ill­con­sid­ered ac­tions in some re­gions cre­ate dif­fi­cul­ties in lo­cat­ing res­i­dents.

The min­is­ter, an­swer­ing the ques­tions of deputies, stressed that strict con­trol is be­ing con­ducted on these facts and mea­sures are be­ing taken to those re­spon­si­ble who have com­mit­ted such short­com­ings. In turn, opin­ions were ex­pressed on in­creas­ing the re­spon­si­bil­ity of the con­troller and in­spec­tors who ac­cept con­struc­tion sites.

Based on the ques­tions and an­swers that were voiced at the Gov­ern­ment Hour, opin­ions and judg­ments were ex­pressed, pro­pos­als of deputies to pre­vent gaps al­lowed in the ac­tiv­i­ties of the min­istry. In par­tic­u­lar, it was rec­om­mended to re-de­velop the stan­dards that were in­tro­duced 27 years ago in the hous­ing and con­struc­tion sec­tor and now com­pletely do not meet mod­ern re­quire­ments, as well as re­vise the Hous­ing Code of the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan.

Fol­low­ing the meet­ing, it was de­cided to ac­ti­vate ef­fec­tive par­lia­men­tary con­trol over the im­ple­men­ta­tion of work in the pro­vi­sion of hous­ing to the pop­u­la­tion.
