You get a mail regarding verification only if you upload something which has error in it.

So now if you haven't got any message regarding your edited thumb impression and if you are able to submit your form successfully, then you can consider your form to be correct.

Also, just check all the details before submitting. And still, if something is wrong then you can make changes when the correction window opens in January.
Also, check your spam folder in the mail.

Hope this helps!

my thumb impression on neet pg application form got rejected.. now iam unable to edit the window. what to do?

Sanjay Khandelwal 5th Dec, 2019
Don't worry if your thumb impression got rejected. You can reupload it. Please read the instructions provided in the notification. The main reason for being rejected can be that your scanned copy is not clean. Try to upload a clear scanned copy. While using your thumb impression with ink on paper take a white paper and press your thumb fully, don't try pressing it for long, you have to press and take back soon. Before keeping your thumb on ink pad try to clean your thumb fully. If you have submitted your application and after that it is rejected then you will get an email and you can re upload within the given time. Hope it will be helpful. Thank you.
