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.

Hi Monaa,

As you have mentioned that you wrote your surname after the first name in NEET PG 2020 application form but in your certificates the surname is before the first name, I suggest you to edit your application form and write your name as it is mentioned in your certificates. If there is any discrepancy, your application form is liable to get rejected. So, don't take any risks and try to enter every details matching your documents.

The correction window for NEET PG is currently open and It will remain open till 7th December 2019. After editing the details, review it properly before submitting. After submitting you won't be able to edit it anymore. You'll get only one chance so do it properly.
