The new deposit amount will be applicable from today's auction to be held at the Traffic General Department at Al Barsha, Capt. Al Mansouri, who is also the supervisor of the Customised Car Number place Auction, said.

According to rules, a bidder forfeits the deposit if he or she fails to pay the amount he had bid for a particular number plate. The deposit, however, is deducted from the price of the number plate when the customer pays for it. The deposits also refunded in case a customer fails to win a bid, and does not buy any customised number plate, he said, adding: "The rule regarding the usual non-refundable Dh100 entry fee remains unchanged."
