Aadhar Card has been made a compulsory identification document. The candidates applying for NEET 2018 will now be required to present the unique identification number while filling the application form. The primary reason why it has been mandated is to keep a check on expected fraud and impersonation in examinations.
Aadhar Card will also facilitate by reaffirming identity of the candidates at the examination center with ease, and will result in accurately ascertaining the applicant’s details, without the need for presenting multiple documents so as to prove one’s identity.
Candidates who have not enrolled for Aadhar Card yet must visit the facilitation centers set up by CBSE in each city where NEET 2018 is to be held. This has been done to facilitate candidates who can approach these Aadhar Enrolment Centers, without having to pay any amount.
The facilitation centers will issue a registration number to these candidates, which should be entered by the applicants at the time of filling NEET 2018 application form.
