Applications for car-scrapping bonuses are piling up at the Economy Ministry but not all the funds allocated have yet been completely withdrawn.

Applications for car-scrapping bonuses are piling up at the Economy Ministry but not all the funds allocated have yet been completely withdrawn.

According to the ministry's website, as of late July car dealers lodged claims for 36,832 subsidies for purchase of new passenger cars from the overall allocation of 44,200 bonuses. The department is warning people eligible for state assistance not to delay purchasing new vehicle for too long. Although bonuses can be applied for until the end of the year, if car dealers are unable to supply the car by the end of the year the buyer concerned will lose entitlement to the scrapping bonus, the SITA newswire wrote.
