Manish Singh 17th Feb, 2020

I am sorry but yes it will cause trouble in your admission procedure. According to neet if any mistake is found in the application form,your admission can be cancelled even if you are eligible. There is no way to correct it now. The only thing you can do is try to contact the examination committee and try to explain your point to them

Koyel Bagchi 17th Feb, 2020

Hello,

Institutional quota means there are some seat capacity in every college which is filled in the badis of entrance exam ranks like NEET.

But after all this admission there are some students who can take admission by the direct entries and those candidates have the reservation.  This type of seat called as Management quota seats.

But always Institutional seats are preferred for the students.

Hope it will help you.

hello sir, Is it compulsary that- Obc certificate should be a recent one for neet pg counselling??

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 17th Feb, 2020

OBC Caste certificate is valid for life long and the OBC--NCL is valid usually for 1 year. So if you are planning on availing OBC benefits, you need to have the recent OBC-NCL certificate. If the current one that you have will expire anytime soon before the counselling, you should get a new one done.
