Dubai Police Launches 'Mobile Dirham' Service
Dubai Police have introduced a "Mobile Dirham" service for Internet users and WAP subscribers for payment of fines or fees for e-service transactions, a press release said.
The service, according to the statement, allows its subscribers to pay electronically through Dubai Police, or through any other department subscribing to it, by using the Internet or mobile phones which have WAP services.
The service, known as 'm-Dirham' is being introduced as an experimental phase, said Capt. Ahmad bin Subeih, head of the Specialized Systems Section of the E-Services General Department in GITEX.
He pointed out that m-Dirham meets the needs of e-government requirements. For users of the 'm-Dirham' service, the company which offers the service will deduct a certain rate from the subscriber's 'm-Dirham' account.
He noted that the service saves a lot of money for individual and company subscribers.
In addition, the service will help facilitate payments from one place.
"The service is provided with a comprehensive security system. Dubai Police were also keen to avoid any mix up of one client's transaction and financial procedures with that of another," he explained.
He said Dubai Police had achieved cutting down of payment procedures as well as time through this service.
Capt. Bin Subeih called on clients of Dubai Police interested in subscribing to the 'm-Dirham' service to make their application to Dubai Police Headquarters.
"Once the application is approved, the applicant will be given a number and an ID," he noted.
He said the registration for service is free and the 'm-Dirham' service is a pioneering service in the field of fees payment provided to both individuals and establishments.
Dubai Police, Capt. Bin Subeih noted, have made an important step towards saving the time, effort and money of subscribers under the electronic and technological revolution being witnessed in the country – Albawaba.com
