Senators want to limit the use of sKaret only benefits in material need, the government shall examine


PRAGUE (MEDIAFAX) - complained SCART could in the future be used only for the payment of benefits in material need. Restrict their function calls his proposal a group of opposition senators to their requirement, however, a government proposal on the agenda of its Wednesday's hearing likely to take a negative opinion.

Senate Bill aim is to limit the use of the card social systems (SCART) to the area of ??assistance in material need under the Act on Assistance in Material Need. The project also according to them was not properly prepared.

"Originally, the introduction of cards from January 1, 2012, but the problems associated with their introduction led to a delay on July 1, 2012, even with the limitation of progressively expanding areas of application.In some areas should be introduced even in 2013, from which it is clear that the project was not properly prepared, "according to the explanatory report to the government.

Promoters also state the material that may violate any applicable regulation as the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs does not allow the use of postal money orders as a method of payment of benefits in cash. With the payment of cash benefits while legislation still count.

"Clearing this option, there is a problem with the availability of benefits for 40 percent of the recipients of these are about 200,000 mostly elderly and persons with disabilities, who would have to obtain the use of different doses of Guardians, the agents," the authors justify attitude.

According to them, should therefore be a significant limitation of use of a card social systems, and only in the area of ??assistance in material need, in other cases, the proposed return to the way the benefits that applied to 31 December 2011.

However, it does not enjoy the support of any of the ministries. For example, key Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs has recommended that the government presented a bill disagrees with the reasoning that the bill represents a significant departure from one of the main principles agreed in the context of social reform. And the proposal also has several other objections.

"The major shortcoming of the bill can be considered the fact that the author does nothing to solve the status of those people that social systems use the card as evidence of newly disabled people and adoption of the draft law would undoubtedly have led to a deterioration of their position,because then the holder of the license could only be such a person with a disability who is also a beneficiary of assistance in material need, "argues Ministry.

It further notes that according to him is also not clear why the authors try to invalidate cards social systems, even in those cases in which the beneficiary benefits bill for this method of payment will be interested. Also criticizes draft legislative-technical deficiencies that ignores the financial impacts of the proposed modifications and conversely understates the savings associated with the introduction sKaret and considers it false to claim that the project was not well prepared.

The proposal envisages that the law came into force on its promulgation.
