I would like to know about Document CAL Validity. Is there any validity time period for Document CAL?

As long as your license you will have Document CAL, there is no restriction on time period.
Please read this. It will clarify your doubt. Thank you.
The Document license is, again, a Named User license. However, it restricts the
named user to one named QlikView document. One named user can be assigned
one license each for multiple documents and each document can have licenses for
At $350 per license (at the time of this writing), this can be a cost-effective way
of getting one application out to many users. While that may sound expensive
compared to some other products, it is worth noting that a Document license
user can still create their own content within the context of the document.
The ratio of just under 4:1 between the cost of Document license and Named User
license means that, if any of your users require access to four or more documents,
then a Named User license would be more cost effective than multiple Document
licenses. Indeed, many customers will deploy Named User licenses to avoid the
potential hassle of managing the association of user to document.

There is no restriction on time period.
A Document CAL is assigned to a unique and identified user (see Identification (page 84)
for information on how users are identified) who may access only the one QlikView
document to which the Document CAL is assigned. Multiple Document CALs can be
assigned to a particular user. For example, if a user connects to two QlikView documents,
the user will have been assigned two Document CALs. A Document CAL may be
transferred to another user pursuant to the software licensing agreement, in which case there
is a 24-hour quarantine before the Document CAL can be transferred to another user. There
is no time limit for how long a user assigned a Document CAL can access the QlikView
document to which the CAL is assigned.
