2. Documents:

Amongst the most important documents, you should keep beforehand while submitting the NEET 2019 online application form are –

  • The scanned images of photo and signature with the correct size, dimension and format
  • Aadhaar card for Indian Nationals
  • Credit or debit details for hassle-free payment
  • Passport number for foreign nationals
  • Ration card number, passport, bank account number, etc. for candidates belonging to J&K, Meghalaya and Assam

3. Image Size:

Candidates need to upload the scanned copies of the passport size photograph and the signature while submitting the form. The format of the images should be in JPG or JPEG. The background for the passport size photograph should be white, and the date of taking the picture along with the name of the candidate must be mentioned on the image.

  • The size of the scanned copy of the passport photograph should be between 10 kb and 100 kb.
  • The size of the scanned copy of the signature should be 3 KB to 20 KB.

4. Aadhaar Card:

Aadhaar card has become mandatory for all the Indian nationals except students from J&K, Meghalaya and Assam.

It is used to allot the examination centres to the exam-takers in a hassle-free manner.

Also, this has helped applicants not to carry multiple documents for the identity and address proof. Candidates who have not received their cards yet can use the enrolment number.

And those who don’t have one are advised to visit the nearest enrolment centre and apply for it. For any spelling mistake on the card, they must apply for the correction and enter that number instead.

5. Payment Details:

Applications submitted without successful payment of the application fee will face the consequence. The application form will be rejected straight away.

Hence, applicants need to pay the registration fees as instructed. Step III (out of 4 steps) is the application fee payment.

The mode of payment is online only. Candidates can complete the payment procedure through debit card, credit card, net banking or e-wallet of different service providers.
