National Edu News

New Delhi: CBSE has extended the online registration date of NEET 2018.  As per the new notification, candidates can submit their application till March 12, 2018. Earlier the deadline was 9th March. On 7th, the Supreme Court had asked CBSE not to make Adhaar mandatory for the registration. 

"The announcement by CBSE comes in wake of the Supreme Court's decision to allow alternative IDs for registration besides Aadhaar which was earlier made mandatory by the board" PTI reported.

Open School and Private Students can also register for NEET 2018. 

As it is not mandatory to submit the Adhaar number, the candidate can use Ration Card, Passport, Bank Account No. or other valid Government ID (such as Driving License, Voter ID etc.).
