Due to COVID 19 Outbreak, Iam not able to receive my dental registration number of my state dental council, which is mandatory for final registration of PG 2020. How can I final registration myself???

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 30th Mar, 2020

Anand, AIIMS PG final registration dates have been revised and so you have time until April 4th. But with the National lockdown it is highly unlikely that the DCI will send you the registration details. In such cases even a Provisional registration will work. Having said that, it makes it worth to hear from the horse's mouth. So please mail AIIMS hepdesk at: aiims.pgexams@gmail.com
