While in India I would like to purchase a pre-paid sim card from Vodafone. When I asked my company for it, they said it would be as easy as walking in into any store and paying for it. However, searching the vodafone site I noted they ask for photos, proof of residency, passport copies etc.

How easy would be for me to get a pre paid sim card either at the Bangalore Intl or the Hyderabad airports and what docs do I need to have with me?

I don't think you can get them a either Airport especially if you are landing at an ungodly hour when most international flights land. Please go thru the above posts where getting a SIm is pretty much discussed on a daily basis.

And validity is for a certain period, and sometimes roaming is a problem. Be aware of the conditions you are buying the card under.

the process is the same for indian or foreigner, indians have to give id and residence proof too.
