Dubai, June 16, 2013
The Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) is offering a distinguished package of 300 plate numbers in its twentieth online auction, including the M, N, L, K, J, I categories.
Registration for the auction will start on June 18 and will continue for one week, while the auction kicks off on June 25 and continues for three days.
Mohammed Abdul-Kareem Nimaat, director of Vehicle Licensing at RTA Licensing Agency, said: "The auction promises to be widely popular, particularly as it comprises various categories of interest to broad segments of the society. The auction is held in response to the wish of certain clients who prefer to take part in online auctions solely as they offer them full liberty in selecting their fancied numbers in a hassle-free atmosphere."
He also indicated that the success of such online auctions contributes to enhancing the e-services offered by Vehicles Licensing Department, and helps work teams improve other e-services for purposes of swift and smooth transactions and higher customer satisfaction.
"Registration in the auction is open through different communication channels: through logging into RTA website rta.ae, or visiting any of RTA Customer Service Centres in Dubai to seek assistance from employees in completing the registration and participation formalities,” he added.
“Participants will be required to pay a sum of Dh5,000 ($1,360) as a deposit prior to the commencement of auction; either by using a credit card, submitting a cheque addressed to the RTA or paying in cash. The Department is committed to refunding deposited amounts to clients after the conclusion of the auction in the same way it had been deposited," he concluded.
Nimaat also indicated that a work team from RTA Call Center has been set up and furnished with all details of the auction, in order to be able to respond to all inquiries of the public about how to participate in the auction or effect payment. – TradeArabia News Service
