DUBAI, 5th May, 2019 (WAM) — His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, has ordered bonus payments of AED26.03 million to Emirati owners of 5,206 taxi number plates operated by Dubai Taxi Corporation and its franchise companies.

The Roads and Transport Authority, RTA, will begin processing payments of the 2018 bonus to beneficiaries together with their annual dues starting in Holy Month of Ramadan.

Mattar Al Tayer, RTA Director General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors, thanked Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid for the generous reward to owners of taxi number plates, most of whom are fixed income earners. He added that such bonuses support the beneficiaries in ensuring a decent living for them and their families.

“This bonus is one of the various philanthropic initiatives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed who is firmly focused on bringing happiness to the people. Incidentally, this time, the payment coincides with the beginning of Ramadan. The gesture is a true reflection of His Highness’ keenness to follow up on the social affairs and living conditions of his people, and promote solidarity between community members,” said Al Tayer.
