Conducted by CBSE for AIPMT, National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) is the entrance examination for admission to MBBS and BDS courses in private and public institutes. In a pioneering digitization move this year, NEET 2016 Rank Letters for eligible students were issued through DigiLocker.
What this meant is that candidates wanting access to their Rank Letters to apply for medical college seats, did not have to wait for physical copies of their letters. Instead, the digitized rank letters were immediately available in their DigiLocker accounts. These digitized letters are equivalent to the physical letters as per the provisions of the IT ACT 2008.
This project was made possible by active collaboration between CBSE and the DigiLocker team. This is the first time in the country, when results of a top professional course have been made available digitally. We hope this will set a trend for others to follow.
