Contrary to what is displayed above, payment is still allowed till March 13, 11.50 PM. Candidates who had registered earlier, had completed Step 2 of the application process by uploading photo and signature and only had payment pending, were shown the following message when they logged in after 5.30 PM on March 12:

About NEET Application Form Correction Window

The CBSE has issued a public notice on March 12, 2018, as per which it will provide a one-time correction window to candidates between March 15 and March 17, 2018, for making corrections in certain fields of the NEET application form. The correction window of the NEET 2018 application form was earlier scheduled to be open between March 12 and March 16, 2018. However, the CBSE was forced to extend the previous NEET application deadline from March 9 to March 12, 2018. The extension came after the Supreme Court directed the Board on March 6, 2018, to remove the rule requiring all candidates to submit their Aadhaar details while submitting the form. In a notice issued by the CBSE regarding this on March 8, "In addition to Aadhaar or Aadhaar Enrollment No., the candidates may fill the application form by mentioning alternative Identification Number such as Ration Card, Passport, Bank Account No. or other valid Government ID (such as Driving License, Voter ID etc.)".

What can candidates correct in the NEET application form 2018?

Unlike last year, when the CBSE only allowed candidates from Assam, Jammu and Kashmir and Meghalaya to make corrections to their Identification Identity, Date of Birth and Gender, all candidates will be allowed to make corrections to these fields and many others as per this year’s correction window notice. However, if candidates have used Aadhaar details while submitting their form, then they will not be allowed to change their Date of Birth or Gender.
