The National Development Plan 2022-2026 He has several articles to his credit that may be of little liking for the finances of many Colombians.
If you own a property, a new car or carry a loan with Icetex, there are a series of articles in the PND document that can touch where it hurts the most: your pocket.

1. Technical-mechanical review
If you own a new car, the Development Plan may affect you, because in the paper for the second debate there is an article that changes the times of the first technical-mechanical reviewsince this clarifies that this mandatory process would no longer have to be done at six years of age, as established, but at five.
2. Automatic property update
If you are the owner of a property and it has not been updated for more than five years, you should know that the PND has an article that allows the massive cadastral updatethis with the aim of improving land planning issues, in addition to correcting concerns regarding the tax burden, since people would begin to pay more based on what they declare.

“In the big cities there are greater advances; however, we see a very strong delay in the rest of the places and we have always believed that there is enormous potential for generating resources there. For example, I know of some farms in Mesa de Yeguas for 2,000 or 3,000 million pesos with ridiculous appraisals and a property tax that doesn’t even reach 1 per 1,000. The appraisals are well below what the market value could behe said Jorge Iván González, director of the National Planning Department.
As soon as the PND enters into force, the Citizen Income program would be created, which is already taking its first steps hand in hand with social prosperitywhich seeks to financially benefit the most disadvantaged families in the country, this depending, of course, on factors such as the conformation of the household and its area of residence.
(Three hits and misses of the PND in energy transition).
As a transition, Cielo Rusnique, director of Social Prosperity, announced that the first payment will be made on April 29. The idea of the program is to benefit some 3.3 million households in situations of poverty, extreme poverty and vulnerability. In this way, the entity would allocate close to seven billion pesos.
The PND also proposes a new system of transfers of resources in kind in order to have a guarantee of respect for the human right to food of the population living in poverty and extreme povertywith a focus on rights and with the participation of the popular and community, peasant and family economies.
5. Reduction of health contribution for pensioners
For pensioners in the country who make contributions of between two and three minimum wages, that is, 3.3 and 3.4 million pesos by 2023, the health contribution they must make on a monthly basis will be deducted. This would decrease from 12% to 10%.
(Guilds receive the ministers with great expectation).
The PND establishes that electric power subsidies will be reallocated in order to guarantee that the essential level of consumption of users in vulnerable conditions of strata 1 and 2 is covered.
Likewise, the article establishes that it will be subject to the use of smart meters, to the extent that said scheme is implemented, as well as the implementation of subsidy targeting methodologies that, By strengthening the current inclusion errors, they can have the resources required for the rate of the measure.
7. Interest on educational loans
Through a new article included for debate in plenary, the PND authorizes Icetex so that it can make partial compensation for the Consumer Price Index (CPI) that makes up the interest rate on loans for education.
(Petro’s annoyance for the PND article that would have been eliminated).
This measure seeks to benefit Icetex users who have lines of credit with a subsidized rate and with greater socioeconomic vulnerability.
8. Creation and permanence of formal employment
In order to give continuity to the measures aimed at the promotion, generation and protection of formal employment, the PND establishes an incentive for the generation of new employment, which will be extended to employers that hire workers with disabilities. This may be extended until August 2026.
The Government will evaluate the importance of its continuity, according to the results of the technical studies carried out by the sectoral public entities and may redesign the access and permanence requirements.
