The Constitutional Court of Romania (CCR) rejected, on Thursday, as unfounded, the Government's notification regarding the Law rejecting OUG 123/2020 for the amendment of article 3 of Law 61/1993 on the state allowance for children, sources from CCR specified for AGERPRES.

On August 19, the Chamber of Deputies rejected, as a decision-making body, Ordinance 123/2020, which amends and completes Article 3 of Law 61/1993, aimed at the gradual increase of the child allowance amount.

According to OUG 123/2020, the gradual increase of the child allowance amount would take place as follows: "the increase by 20% of the difference between the amount provided for by Law No. 14/2020 and the amount granted in July 2020, namely between 300 lei and 156 lei for children aged between 2 and 18 and between 600 lei and 311 lei for children with disabilities aged between 2 and 18, as well as for children up to 2 years old, the increase applies starting with the rights of August 2020, and for the period 2021 - 2022 twice a year, from January 1 and July 1 of each year; from 2023 it is proposed to continue the process of increasing the amount of the allowance with the average annual inflation rate.
