close the LOT. The total number of mobile numbers entered in the LOT should be shown on
the top of page where data entry is done.
3.6. A typical work flow can be as under
3.6.1. The POCAF at all level, shall make LOTS. Attempt should be made to scan the most
recent CAF first. LIFO. But in no way, the scanning has to stop.
3.6.2. All the LOTs should be handed over to the SSA_CAF_Owner, with proper sign off.
This should be also reflected in the software.
3.6.3. Once the LOT is received is ready with SSA_CAF_Owner, it should be handed to
vendor and after that it shall be shown pending for scanning.

1.        Detailed Procedures and methodology for Scanning
          Ownership Definitions
     1.1. Circle_CAF_Owner: The person shall be from the CMTS cell. He shall be responsible
           for getting the CAF scanned for the entire circle. The invoice payment shall be the
           responsibility of this person. Backup of the complete data shall be the responsibility
           of Circle_CAF_Owner. Backup to be taken on weekly basis. The name, contact
           number of the person at the circle level, with whom the vendor has to co-ordinate
           shall be entered in the software.
     1.2. SSA_CAF_Owner: This person shall be responsible for getting the CAF scanned for
           the entire SSA/Area. The name, contact number of the person at SSA level/ Area
           Manager shall be entered in the software.
     1.3. POCAF_Owner: POCAF stands for Point Of CAF. Each point where CAF exist should
           have an owner defined who shall be responsible of getting the CAF scanned within
           his jurisdiction. The name, contact number of person shall be entered in the software
           in proper hierarchy. For example, in an SDCA if CAF are submitted, then
           POCAF_Owner has to be defined for the SDCA. Similarly if an SSA HQ is having,
           say, four CSC where CAF are collected, four POCAF_Owner are to be defined. If
           the DSA/franchise is submitting the CAF to some person in SSA HQ, then a
           separate POCAF_Owner has to be defined. Even if same person is taking CAF for
           BSNL and for Franchise/dealer/distributer, he should have different POCAF_Owner
           ID. Each POCAF_Owner shall have a separate ID and password. The person shall
           co-ordinate with customer/ franchise/DSA for getting the rejected form complete in
           all respects. The ID of the person shall be available with each CAF data. The more
           the number of this ID, the better will be the data. In case of any confusion, plan
           for more number of ID.
     1.4. As per the regulatory requirement, letter No 800-4/2003-VAS (Vol.III) (Pt.III) dated
           13.09.2007 issued by ADG(VAS-1) of DOT, it should be possible to trace from
           which CSC/ Dealer/ Distributer/ DSA, the CAF was collected.
     1.5. SSA_QC_Owner: The person will be responsible for checking 100% CAF after the full
           LOT is ready in all aspects, and is ready for uploading. The ID of this person shall be
           entered in the software.
     1.6. The vendor is free to upload the data of a LOT/CAF in the server at any stage, as
           required by the workflow.
