Construction, reconstruction, repair and maintenance of linear facilities will be simplified. The bill introduced by the government of the Russian Federation placed in the electronic database of the lower house of Parliament.

Calculated in accordance with the current legislation term of registration of rights to land plots in state or municipal property, intended for placing of linear objects, is about one year. While existing legal acts oblige organizations who place linear objects, to carry out construction (reconstruction) of facilities for technological connection of facilities of the consumers in period of four months. This difference in timing leads to the fact that a significant portion of the linear facilities are built with violation of the established order.
