Questions related to NEET PG
i have filled neet pg application form, made the payment, money deducted from my account but payment status on application is pending. what to do next
These things happen sometimes in online payment. It's nothing to worry about. As the last date to apply for NEET PG is 15 March 2021. I will suggest you to wait for one to three days. So that if the payment has been done and received by the receipent then you application status will be submitted. Other than that if the money is deducted but not received by the receipent you can re do the payment as the money deducted will be credited back to your account within a week.
Hope that helps.
