WAM Dubai, Mar 30th, 2013 (WAM)–The UAE Vice President and Prime Minister, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, in his capacity as the Ruler of Dubai, has ordered the payment of Dh 26.5 million to Emiratis whose 6, 591 taxicab number plates are being used by the Dubai Taxi Corporation and taxi franchise companies registered with the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).

The General Transport Corporation will commence the distribution of a bonus payment for 2012 to the beneficiaries, in addition to their annual entitlements.

Mattar Al Tayer, Chairman of the Board and Executive Director of the RTA thanked Sheikh Mohammed for ordering the payment of the bonus to the owners of taxicab plate numbers, many of whom have limited incomes so that they may provide a decent living for their families.

He added that “the reward is one of the noble gestures frequently made by Sheikh Mohammed to help improve the living conditions of citizens, especially those of limited income.” WAM/MN
