i hve correct my thumb impression photo and signature on 9th of nov bt later on 11th they mail me that i hve to upload my impression again.. and i forgot to upload. is their any problem?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 16th Nov, 2019

Well, yes it might be problematic because you were asked to upload your thumb impression in the first place because it did not meet the set guidelines. Now if you haven't uploaded the thumb impression for whatsoever reasons, the not meeting guidelines part still remains the same. Now you need to wait to hear from NBE for any communication. Because you still have an image that doesn't meet the guidelines. Please wait to hear from them. Or you can also mail them from your registered email id: [email protected]
