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.)".
