India’s largest telecommunications services provider, Bharti Airtel in association with the TERM Cell (NCR), Department Of Telecommunications (DoT), organised an awareness drive to sensitise its network of retailers and distributors on compliance guidelines for new SIM activations.
Conducted as part of Airtel’s efforts to ensure highest compliance to DoT guidelines, by its retail partners, the session educated the distributors on correct measures for customer verification and documentation as prescribed by the Government.
Sameer Chug, Director – Legal & Regulatory Affairs (India & South Asia), Bharti Airtel said, “As a responsible corporate, compliance of all requisite guidelines laid down by the Government is of utmost importance to us. We ensure that thorough customer verification at the time of new activation is an undisputed mandate adherence by our distribution partners. In line with this, we have already deployed Aadhar based eKYC verification, which is not only faster but also efficient. With this drive, we plan to help our retailers and distributors to ensure full compliance with all the norms during the documentation process.”
