i am neet pg aspirant. my dad had applied for ews certificate at collector office. The office assumed that i am below 18 yrs of age and issued certificate with my fathers photo. When we came to know of the mistake they rectified it by pasting my photo and issuing a stamp over it. will it cause prob

Apoorva Student Expert 19th Nov, 2019

Hello dear student,

It should not cause any problem because they have pasted your photo above it and also put the official stamp over it . Until something is not right nobody can put their stamp over it but there must be some signing authority so I would suggest you to attest your form from them . Otherwise having stamp is also says your form is attested. So I don't think so that should cause any problem .

I hope this was helpful

Best wishes

I belonged to creamy layer obc, and i have selected obc as category in neet pg 2020,. Is it okay to be given and if not how do i change it?Please help......

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 19th Nov, 2019

Unfortunately, you cannot change your Category even during the correction window. You may have to re-register with a new email id, mobile no# and fill in the application form again. This means a new payment altogether. But to be clear on this, can you please write to the helpdesk at: [email protected]  to clarify with them if OBC Creamy layer comes under General Category?


EWS certificate for neet pg is applicable for foreign medical graduate!!?? Can they apply in this category?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 16th Nov, 2019

EWS reservation can be availed by all Indian Citizens who fulfil the eligibility criteria. The eligibility rule states that a Candidate who belongs to General Category and doesn't claim reservation benefits of other Categories like OBC,SC,ST and whose annual income from all sources is less than 8 lakhs per annum can avail this reservation. So in other words, you should belong to General Category and then your family income should be less than 8 lakhs per annum. If you fulfil this criteria, though you have studied Medicine abroad and want to study your Masters here in India, you can avail this reservation

No, once you submit the form you cannot make any changes in the correction window except Dte of birth and category.No other things can be changed.
