Now it costs not $ 400, but $ 60, but this is still 8 times higher than its official price, truckers say.

The cost of a permit for international cargo transportation ("permission") after a rally of truck drivers in front of the building of the Ministry of Transport of Tajikistan was reduced by 7 times.

"Permission" (jargon) is a two-sided authorization document that gives the driver the right to transport goods from another country.

The truck drivers reported that the "permission" was sold to them for $ 60 until September, and after that it was raised to $ 400, although the Ministry of Transport claims that this document actually costs only 84 somoni ($ 7.5).
