A relevant decree on this subject was issued on December 17, 2020.


Prior to this, the Heroes of Tajikistan had the following benefits: 100-pecent pension supplement; providing housing primarily in accordance with established norms; 50-percent discount on utility bills; annual provision of a free voucher to a sanatorium or a rest home in case of need for spa treatment; once a year free travel by rail, air or intercity transport within the republic.


To-date, the title of “Hero of Tajikistan,” the highest Tajikistan distinction, has been awarded to six persons: Bobojon Ghafourov (December 18, 1908 – July 12, 1977), Sadriddin Ayni (April 15, 1878 – July 15, 1954), Mirzo Tursunzoda (May 2, 1911 — September 4, 1977), Shirinsho Shotemur (December 1, 1899 – October 27, 1937), Nusratullo Makhsum (July 1, 1881 – November 1, 1937) and incumbent Tajik President Emomali Rahmon (born October 5, 1952).


Thus, today only Emomali Rahmon can take advantage of these benefits offered by the Government.
