Bonuses of more than AED 14 million will be paid to the Emirati owners of taxi number plates in Dubai.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has ordered the payment.

The owners of 2,833 taxi number plates will be given the bonus in addition to their annual dues during the holy month of Ramadan.

"This bonus is one of several of His Highness’s gestures during Ramadan to enhance the welfare of citizens," said Mattar Mohammed Al Tayer, Director General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).

"The payments particularly reflect his keenness to support fixed income earners and disadvantaged families. Apart from enhancing their wellbeing and happiness, the initiative also contributes to boosting social solidarity," added Al Tayer.
