Verification process of NEET UG 2020 to get stricter


NEW DELHI: With over 6,000 undergraduate medical admissions in Tamil Nadu under the scanner, the National Testing Agency is making the application and verification process for National Eligibility cum Entrance Test — Under Graduate (NEET UG 2020) even more stringent. From now on applicants will additionally have to fill in their class X and XII roll numbers and upload an identity card, apart from a live photograph to detect impersonation/ fraud. The NTA is also waiting for the approval of the ministry of information technology for Aadhaar verification. The registration for 2020 NEET UG will commence from December 1, 2019.
According to an official of HRD ministry, NTA is going to introduce several changes in the registration process so that the agency can have data to verify, match and “flag” cases of potential discrepancies. “An applicant may also need to upload a live photo. The class X and XII roll numbers will also be used to verify the candidates. At the test centres, candidates may also be asked to show the identity card uploaded at the time of registration,” said the official.
According to an NTA official, the agency will reopen the registered forms for editing, “which means the applicants will be able to provide class XII roll numbers as majority of the education boards will issue admit cards once the NEET UG 2020 registration gets over.”
