Here's what you need to do:

1. Remove the SIM card and wipe the gold metal on the SIM with a clean cloth.
2. Re-insert the SIM card.

If the phone still ask to install the SIM, then try another SIM to isolate the problem. If same problem occurs, contact an authorized repair shop and have them repair the SIM card slot.

Have a great day!

I have a Loop Mobile network. 9664350509. After some stupidity i got my phone blocked and now it is asking for the PUK code. Please help.

You can request the PIN Unlock Key (PUK) to your cellular phone carrier, but also it's printed on the SIM card carrier (credit size plastic frame) where your SIM was delivered to you, maybe it's stored in the original cell phone box if the SIM was already installed in your phone.

The PUK is printed on the SIM card carrier (credit card size frame) where your SIM was delivered or if it was already installed into your phone, it could be into the phone box, if it doesn't you can request PUK to the company that provides service to your SIM card, usually by phone or e-mail.

The PIN Unlock Key (PUK) is printed on the SIM plastic carrier (credit card size frame) where your SIM was delivered, if already was installed into your phone, the carrier should be inside the box of your phone, but if it doesn't, you can request PUK to the cell phone company that gives service to the SIM card.
