The last date for submission of Application Form of NEET 2020 i.e. 31.12.2019 (upto 11:50 PM) has been extended to 06.01.2020 (upto 11:50 PM), in order to enable the aspiring candidates who have not been able to apply in the Online Application Form due to heavy rush in the website.
The revised schedule shall be as under:
|EVENT||EXISTING DATES||REVISED DATES|
|On-line submission of|
|02.12.2019 to 31.12.2019 (upto 11.50 p.m.)||02.12.2019 to 06.01.2020 (upto 11.50 p.m.)|

The date of correction in particulars in Online Application Form remains the same i.e. 15.01.2020 to 31.01.2020 (upto 11.50 p.m.).
In addition to the above, the Candidate(s) in the Kashmir Valley, Leh and Kargil can also submit the Application Form offline at the Nodel Centres fixed by NTA. For the procedure of submission of offline Application Form and the Nodal Centres, candidates may refer to the Public Notice dated 15 December/17 December 2019, available on NTA website: https://ntaneet.nic.in.
Earlier, after receiving various queries regarding filling up of choice under State of Eligibility (for 15% All India Quota) column in the Application Form of NEET 2020; the NTA had clarified that all the candidates are eligible for this quota independent of their choice under State of Eligibility.
These candidates can fill in any State/UT (e.g. State/UT of their Class XII School, Home State/UT etc.) against this choice.
However, the candidates from the erstwhile State of J & K (now known as UTs of J & K and Ladakh) are NOT ELIGIBLE for 15% all India quota seats as the erstwhile state of J & K had opted out of All India Scheme since its inception. If they claim eligibility, they must submit online Self- Declaration which will be generated and printed automatically along with confirmation page for record and to present the same during counselling/admission. The format/ content of self-declaration is given in Appendix – III of the Information Bulletin of NEET 2020.
The above is applicable to 15% All India Quota seats only. For State/UT quota and other seats falling under the ambit of States/UTs, the domicile will be governed by the respective State rules and will be required at the time of Counselling by the State/UT Authorities, stated the notice.
It was also reiterated that under various categories, State list Category Candidates who are not in Central List must choose General.
This year, the admission to MBBS course in AIIMS, New Delhi, JIPMER and all AIIMS like institutions will also be made through NEET.
