The State Duma deputy from the LDPR asked the FAS and the Central Bank to check the legality of the decision.
For the first time in the last twenty years, the management of Sberbank decided to increase the monthly cost of notifications for Russians.
The credit institution explained that the step was caused by a “doubling of business volume over the past five years&# 8221;. According to the Security Council, both the growth of the transactions themselves and the types and number of messages are recorded.
It is known that the number of clients – individuals in 2021 increased from 100.5 million to 103.8 million. The number of corporate clients – up to more than 3 million.
Depending on the type of card, the price will increase by 10 rubles per month, amounting to 40 or 70 rubles. The new rules will start working on August 1.
According to RIA Novosti, the decision was made against the backdrop of new sanctions that were adopted by the European Union against the bank.
At the same time, a State Duma deputy from the faction LDPR Vasily Vlasov, in his Telegram channel, said that he had sent a request to the Central Bank and the FAS with a request to check the fact of an increase in the cost of notifications.
According to him, almost all Russians use Sberbank notifications.
“Are the guys from Sberbank really already?.. 100 million multiplied by 10 rubles a month equals a billion every month”, – Vlasov calculated.
He believes that controlling organizations should check the legitimacy of such a step.
Earlier, Topnews wrote that from July 1, the bank introduced a commission for transfers to cards of other credit organizations.
