The Ministry of Labor did not support the idea of using maternity capital funds to buy a car. This is reported by RIA Novosti with reference to the first deputy head of the State Duma Committee on Education, Yana Lantratova.
The ministry's response to the deputy's request says that the implementation of this proposal could lead to abuse in terms of the use of mother capital funds and to the inefficient use of budgetary allocations from the federal budget.
It is also emphasized that the ability to use mother's capital to buy a car will only temporarily improve the living conditions of families with children, since the purchase of a car entails additional expenses from the family budget for its maintenance.
In addition, the possibility of buying a car for maternity capital carries a number of risks. The department explained that when spending these funds on the acquisition of property, a written obligation is provided for registration of property in the common property of spouses and children.
« car capital into the shared ownership of both parents, the task of observing the rights of children to own this property is not solved. At the same time, the establishment of a direct ban on the transfer or disposal of this property also does not ensure the observance of the rights of all family members, including children, in the event of a family breakup,” the document summarized.
Earlier, Russian leader Vladimir Putin signed a law that allows maternity capital funds to be used to pay for education provided by individual entrepreneurs. In particular, parents will be able to use this money to pay for a private kindergarten.
