DUBAI – For five days, Dubai residents will only be able to pay their Dewa bill and other bills for Dubai government services through online portals.
The initiative will roll out from October 21 to 25 and is meant to encourage residents to use Dubai’s smart services, such as websites and apps.
The Department of Finance is spearheading the campaign with the cooperation of 40 government bodies.
The campaign follows last year’s A Day Without Service Centre where people could only access government services online for one day. The initiative helped Dubai receive 31,000 transactions. GAD/Expat Media
