For the sake of fair competition and consumers, the Department is conducting inspections during the VAT lottery. The results of the examination will be compiled this week and the results will be submitted to the Deputy Prime Minister. On this occasion, B. Bat-Erdene, the head of the National Football Association of Georgia, announced on his website that he will submit a proposal to cancel the organization of the lottery. He said, “Initially, the goal was to promote and implement the VAT law, but after a certain period of time, it has given sufficient results.” Also, following the example of the lottery, lotteries have been held in the society, especially in the social environment, and we explain that the state conducts lotteries as the basis for conducting them as well. “Many citizens are suffering.” There is talk of stopping the VAT incentive lottery and returning 10 percent. In the DNN-clarification column, we present the views of citizens on this matter.
A. Gereltuya, a citizen of VII district of Sukhbaatar district:
– After three years of registration, I won the lottery only once. But there are hardly any cases where people around you won the lottery. I can’t say for sure if it’s unfair for the employees to get lucky themselves, but I think there’s some truth to it. In general, regardless of whether it is an enterprise or a citizen, I think that they should get their ten percent refund. Two percent is a little less, in a sense, it means that citizens are being “scrutinized”. It is wrong to give citizens only 2 percent of the amount they should have received, not 10 percent, and to cheat only a few people in the name of lottery.
Ts. Otgonzaya, a citizen of the 9th district of Khan-Uul district:
– The Ministry of Education and Culture worked very well. The abolition of the VAT lottery is very correct. I personally support it. After the curfew, all kinds of money and goods lotteries started going on social media. It would be better if the government at least didn’t pull it out. I have never had any luck with VAT settlement. It is not easy to go to the application to check if you are lucky. There are probably many people like me. Everyone pays VAT. Therefore, you should cancel the lottery and give 10 percent of the refund. In the last few months, the super lucky winner has not been announced because the people have expressed their opinion and protested against it. What does this have to do with it? There is a suspicion that it is a fraud. It was seen that every citizen supports the cancellation of this lottery.
B. Undarmaa, a citizen of X district of Bayanzurkh district:
– I won twenty thousand MNT for the first time in 2018. He was not lucky at all. In the press, there were rumors that the employee of the technology team had won a lot of money for his family thirty times. In general, such a conversation did not come out of nowhere. The people have the right to know and suspect what lies behind the injustice. I’d say the two percent refund is pure fraud. So let’s stop the lottery and take 10 percent.
N. Nyambayar, a citizen of the fifth district of Khan-Uul district
It seems that most of the people believe that it is right to cancel the VAT lottery. But if you look at it from a different angle, markets, small shops and service stations all give receipts. People ask for receipts, whether it’s a drink or a parking ticket, because they’re giving you a chance to win the lottery someday. If you stop running the lottery now, make a “good offer” to get a 10 percent discount. Thus, a hidden economy will be created again. I personally think that only adults will win.
Ch. Sharav, a member of the IX team of Darkhan-Uul province:
– I think the VAT lottery is very unfair. Because only a small part of the refund money we put in goes to luck. In my case, I have registered my documents since 2018, but I have never been lucky. It would have been better if he got the ten percent refund he deserved instead. It is true that employees naturally win by themselves. It is not possible to classify the people into superior and inferior ones by luck. I would like to take back 10 percent to make it fair for everyone. I want this matter to be investigated and resolved as soon as possible.
