The mobile connections shall be activated only after the requirement of filling (iv) up of customer acquisition form and copies of documentary proof as per requirement have been fulfilled by the customer and the subscriber details have been updated in the subscriber database of the Licensee; for this purpose, the licensee (the enmployee of Licensee) shall verify and record on the CAF under his name, designation and Signature that all the documentary requirement has been completed and subscriber details are updated in the database of Licensee. Only after this activity has been done the SIM card can be activated. For this purpose sufficient space should be provided in the CAF.
