NEET Aspirants Face Technical Issues While Registering with Aadhar

Medical aspirants reported technical glitches over Aaadhar details while logging into NEET’s website to register for the entrance examination. Even though CBSE verified the details of the aspirants on Aadhar with UIDAI’s official website, several were still unable to write.

Aadhaar was made mandatory for MBBS NEET aspirants last year. Students would need to provide their details while registering for the exam itself, and if these do not meet the information mentioned in Aadhaar, their application will be rejected.

Technical Issues

Sudha Shenoy, a parent, informed that when the document was made mandatory for the registration process last year, it only required students to fill Aadhaar numbers. But this year, they were mapping details with the name, date of birth, and gender of the candidates, and even if a minor detail did not match the Aadhaar card, the students could not register. Some others faced technical glitches, she added.

Another parent could not register as the date of birth, as the candidate’s school certificate did not match that on the card. “It was the parent’s fault, but there is enough time to rectify that mistake online,” he justified.


Another parent shared his technical issue and said that the page did not lead anywhere even after the security pin was generated. A student added that after filling in the details, they received no confirmation message on the website. Another student said the page was unavailable after the one-time password was entered.

Students must get the Aadhar Card Verified.

Candidates received messages stating that the details file they filled in didn’t match their Aadhaar card. A parent said, “I am trying to register, but the system says my gender and date of birth do not match even when I have verified it thrice.”

A CBSE spokesperson clarified that these “technical glitches faced were consequences of the heavy traffic on the site, and as it is not on a first-come, first-served basis, students should not panic if they cannot register right now. Aadhaar details are sought for a unified process for registration and not to cause trouble”.

NEET is scheduled for May 6 for aspirants seeking admission to various MBBS and BDS courses. The candidates can register for the same till March 10. The Aadhaar number is mandatory for all candidates except those from Assam, Jammu & Kashmir, and Meghalaya. Students must verify their Aadhaar details online to ensure these match the details in the school records.
