DUBAI - Dubai residents will be able to pay their electricity and water bills through their mobile phones within a month.
This follows the signing on Sunday of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Dubai eGovernment and Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA). The service, which comes under the mPay service and was initially launched to provide recharge of Salik, has now been extended for the payment of bills by Dewa customers.
Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Managing Director and CEO of DEWA, said the service would help save time and efforts of customers. “This will make it a lot easier to pay DEWA bills. Even if the customers are not in the UAE, they can still pay the bills by the mPay service,” he said. Salem Al Shair, eServices director of Dubai eGovernment, said: “This will certainly benefit a large number of DEWA customers who can now pay their utility bills through mobile phones.” Registration for the mPay service is free and clients can sign up on the mPay’s web portal. Meanwhile, DEWA and Emirates NBD have also signed an MoU to offer direct debit payment facility to ENBD account-holders.
