Different surname in Aadhar and 10/12th Marksheet for NEET-UG
Worried that academic certificates with the old surname may create issues with the NEET-UG application? Quickly get expert advice on whether or not it may be a setback and what you can do about it.
I think I may have two options:
A) I apply with the old surname and submit the Class 12 admit card with a photo as ID proof (as per the information bulletin this is acceptable ID proof). In this case, there will not be any mismatch and at the time of counselling I can provide the necessary documents. However, will this become a problem when I upload my ST certificate as the surname will not match? Will my form get rejected when I upload the second part of the form?
B) I apply with the new surname and give my Aadhar card as ID proof. My ST certificate will also be in sync with this. However, my class 10/12 certificates still have the old surname. Now, provided my application form is not automatically rejected, I get the opportunity to provide the documents of proof for surname change and then everything will be in order. Do they match the names at the time of processing the application form or is it done at the time of counselling?
I hope to get the surname updated on my educational documents by the time counselling comes up. Or is it even required to do so if I already have the Gazetted Document?
