Among them, the first three payment instruments are issued in two installments. Only Octopus is issued in three installments. The three installments are respectively 2,000, 2,000, and 1,000 yuan. The first two installments can be issued as soon as August 1 and October 1, but The third phase will depend on when the public has used up the 4,000 yuan in the vouchers.

Choosing Octopus Arrangements Confusing Chen Maobo Avoids Answering Details

During the meeting, reporters repeatedly asked if the citizens could not use up the 4,000 yuan within the time limit, and whether they could not receive the last 1,000 yuan. Chen Maobo did not answer positively, only explaining that there will be Christmas and Lunar New Year before the deadline, and a text message reminded the public to use the rest. Amount: "After all, 4,000 yuan is not a lot of money, and there is a big holiday and seven months in between. I believe the public will use the sun and bury the last 1,000 yuan."

When asked why the number of Octopus issued is different from the other three models, Wang Xueling, Director of the Budget and Tax Policy Unit, explained that the reason is that Octopus has different operating technology from the other three models.

She pointed out that the electronic wallet can "open the bucket", separate the coupons from the original wallet, and set restrictions on the usage and expiration date of the coupons.

However, Octopus is a stored value method, and the amount of coupons and stored value cannot be separated, so there are two distribution arrangements.

Chen Maobo also emphasized that the relevant design hopes to cater for the needs of different citizens.

For example, he pointed out that some citizens hope to accumulate more money to purchase large-scale electrical appliances; others hope that "the water flows for a long time, and the time is spent slowly."

He described the design this time as "everything is suitable for you. You like an electronic wallet, and you can use it by stacking two pens; or you can use an Octopus for a long period of time."

He also pointed out that the original amount of the Octopus will remain in the system, and the public need not worry about losses.

In addition, citizens can also use consumer vouchers for public transport fares, and the amount used can also be used for public transport subsidies.

Chen Maobo said that it was because he received a lot of comments after the plan was announced, and many hoped that the transportation expenses would be covered.

The subsidy for public transport expenses must be "bottom-filled," that is, the subsidy will only be granted if it exceeds a certain amount; the subsidy amount is not 100%, so it is considered a fair arrangement.
