The fine shall be calculated in percentage rating upon the cadastral value of a land plot. The amount of fine for individuals shall be 0,3 – 0,5% of the land plot cadastral value but not less than 3 thousand rubles; for officials — 0,5—1,5% but not less than 50 thousand rubles; for legal entities — 2—10% but not less than 200 thousand rubles. The highest amount of fine shall be 500 thousand rubles. This measure is aimed at encouragement of agricultural land plots owners to use the land plots effectively for intended purpose and to involve unused lands into turnover.
