Dubai Cares joins mPay Portal
Dubai, March 10, 2013
Dubai Cares, a UAE-based philanthropic organization, said it has joined the mPay Portal service of Dubai eGovernment to stimulate and facilitate financial contributions by donors supporting its humanitarian projects.
With this, the Dubai eGovernment service now covers four government entities including Roads & Transport Authority (RTA), Dubai Police, Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (Dewa).
Commenting on the move, Ahmad Bin Humaidan, the director general of Dubai eGovernment, said: “We are pleased at Dubai Cares joining our mPay portal, which is part of Dubai eGovernment’s initiative to provide round-the-clock government services through innovative channels to the public and the business community in Dubai in line with the directives of Sheikh Mohammed during the recently held Government Summit to provide a single mobile stop shop for citizens to conduct their government transactions from one place.”
“According to our recent statistics, more individual and corporate customers are using Dubai eGovernment’s mPay service to complete their government transactions, stated Bin Humaidan.
"These statistics also show an increase in their confidence in these effective and well-secured channels, especially after the keen efforts of Dubai eGovernment to increase customers’ assurance by upgrading the portal with a more secure e-payment system and a larger range of payment options to provide convenience to users," the official noted.
Reports indicate a remarkable increase of 11 per cent and 39 per cent over 2011 in terms of the amounts collected and number of transactions respectively, he added.
Bin Humaidan said Dubai eGovernment is currently working on the expansion of its corporate and individual beneficiary base, either by introducing new government departments and entities or by adding new services of interest to customers.-TradeArabia News Service
