Kunal, unfortunately, you cannot make changes to your photograph and signature even during the correction window. There must have been a mistake somewhere. Please write to them at their helpdesk:
[email protected] (mailto:[email protected])
. You may have to wait for 24--48 hours before you can hear from them.
Hello dear student,
It should not cause any problem because they have pasted your photo above it and also put the official stamp over it . Until something is not right nobody can put their stamp over it but there must be some signing authority so I would suggest you to attest your form from them . Otherwise having stamp is also says your form is attested. So I don't think so that should cause any problem .
