i am neet pg aspirant. my dad had applied for ews certificate at collector office. The office assumed that i am below 18 yrs of age and issued certificate with my fathers photo. When we came to know of the mistake they rectified it by pasting my photo and issuing a stamp over it. will it cause prob

Apoorva Student Expert 19th Nov, 2019

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 .

I hope this was helpful

Best wishes
