    Dear sir With due respect I would like to you that while filling final registration form i had selected the correct medical college i,e agartala govt medical college but due to some mistyping or scrolling it automatically changed into the next option i,e tripura medical college which was there in the list next to what i had actually selected and this mistake was seen when the final acknowledgement form print was displayed . Moreover I tried to search for any edit detail option in the window but unfortunately I couldn’t find one. So it’s my humble request to you to kindly help me correct the accidental scroll so that my form doesn’t get rejected due to unknown mistake which unfortunately happened. I pray and hope that you will be kind enough to help me solve this issue at the earliest. Thank you
