Vodafone-Idea has launched a new strategy to help its customers that are looking for a new SIM. This is the first time when any telecom operator has come up with this move as earlier customers have to visit retail stores to get the new SIM. The telecom operator has launched an industry-first Self-KYC ( Know your customer) process, which will make the onboarding procedure easier as customers will not have to visit the stores to get the SIM.

Vodafone-Idea Self-KYC Process: Details

It is worth noting that the telecom operator has not launched this initiative in all 22 circles as this is available for Karnataka and Kolkata users. However, Vodafone-Idea is expected to launch the same initiative for all customers in all circles. Plus, this facility is available for postpaid users, which means prepaid users will have to wait to get a new SIM at their doorstep.

KYC is an important step to getting the SIM and self-KYC will allow customers to sit at home and purchase the new connection. However, there are some steps for the Self- KYC.

Here Are Some Steps To Complete The Self-KYC

Step 1: Customers have to check the website and look for the plan.

Step 2: Now, select the number and place the order via OTP authentication
on the alternate mobile number.

Step 3: Now, customers have to follow all steps, which are listed on Self-KYC, including Aadhaar authentication on the UIDAI site.

Step 4: Then, customers have to capture live photos and videos for 10 seconds. Now, the order is placed and digital verification has been completed. The customer will get the new SIM at their home after the OTP authentication.
