Questions related to NEET MDS
I have selected obc category in NEET MDS 2021 , but i only have BC certificate issued by state.. I dont come under Non creamy layer - OBC category. what should I do know.. Is permanent BC certificate sufficient or can I change it to general category now ? Which certificate is valid for NEET MDS?
The OBC reservation are provided to only NON creamy Layer students. If you don't below to the Non Creamy Layer you won't get the reservation. It's better to change your category from OBC to unreserved category as you won't get any reservation under NEET MDS.
You will be counted under unreserved category.
Hope that helps.

hi.....i have done payment for neet mds .... money has been debited from my account but payment status still shows payment failed.....
Sometimes due to server error the amount gets deducted but payment will not be successful. You don't have to worry we would suggest you to make the payment once again only then your application is considered to be complete. The amount which was previously debited will get refunded to the same back account within 7-10 working days depending on the type of transaction and your bank. If not refunded then kindly contact the respective bank customer service.
