Aid which finds its sources in the Purchasing Power law voted last August in Parliament.

Restaurant tickets and several social minima revalued

This is one of the major reforms of this fall. The daily ceiling for restaurant vouchers will drop from 19 euros to 25 euros. ” A decree to be published shortly will increase the maximum amount of meals or food products payable in restaurant vouchers to 25 euros per working day. “, informs the official site of the French administration.

A (new) rebate at the pump

This is perhaps the symbol of this galloping inflation. Prices at the pump have risen to prices never reached in France in recent months. According to the latest figures from the State, they are currently around 1.9488 euros per litre. Faced with this, the government will increase the price of its rebate. From 18 cents, it will drop to 30 cents until November 1. Once this date is reached, it will be reduced to 10 cents per liter of fuel, until December 31.

Scholarships paid on social criteria will be increased by 4% at the start of the school year. ” The 1 euro meal system operated by the Crous, for precarious students, will be maintained throughout the 2022-2023 academic year. “, also specifies the government
