According to him, the State Statistical Committee of the Republic of Azerbaijan presents the size of the average monthly salary and establishes consumer prices indexing in January.
"The allowance for January and February is usually paid in February. The full amount starts to be paid already from March. That is to say, the amount that will be paid in February is not final, since it covers the increase for January and February.
