The large increase in the operating and maintenance costs of cemeteries justifies the 16% increase in the fees in Annexes 2, 4 and 5 of the relevant decree. The cemetery maintenance fee included in Annex 3, to be paid by those performing work as a business, is increased by 100%, considering that this fee includes entry into the cemetery, data reconciliation at the customer service office, on-site inspection by the headstone team leader at the grave site, and the business the fee for checking the submitted documents by the manager.

Due to the increased number of funerals with urns, a high-quality urn wall with 301 2-seat urn booths will be created in a frequented location in the vicinity of the Columbarium. These urn booths can be exchanged for 10 years starting in 2023. The amendment of the relevant decree on November 17, 2022. did not yet include the fee for the redemption of these urn booths after the first 10 years, however, there is an increased need to redeem the urn booths in advance for a period longer than 10 years. With this in mind, the amendment will now be made.
Green area protection fees will be increased by 17%.
The amendments to the decree will enter into force on January 1, 2024.
