With the countdown nearing its end for the first session of JEE Main 2021, a question that many students are asking is – How to fill the JEE Main 2021 self declaration form? Or, How to fill the JEE Main 2021 undertaking?
This is a new addition to the list of documents that one has to take to the center. The undertaking or the self declaration is a part of the JEE Main 2021 admit card. Candidates get it when they download the admit card document. However unlike the hall ticket itself, which is to be simply taken to the center, the undertaking has some fields which you need to fill up. Students are a little baffled as to what to fill in the four points, with different fields. So here we are explaining to you how to fill it up correctly.
How To Fill JEE Main 2021 Undertaking / Self Declaration Form?
First, you have to download all 3 pages of the admit card from the JEE Main 2021 login. In the page 1, there is admit card with the details and then there is the Undertaking / Self Declaration Form. Page 2, and 3 are important instructions for candidates and advisory for candidates regarding COVID-19.

You have to tick in the box here if you were in close contact with any person who was a CONFIRMED COVID-19 case. Close contact does not mean that you were simply talking to that person or something. It means that you were within 1 meter (~3 foot) distance, for more than 15 minutes. So this means you visited such a person and sat or stood just beside them almost. Only then, tick this.
Point #2 (c) in JEE Main 2021 Self Declaration Form – not been in close contact with a person suffering from COVID-19 and am NOT under mandatory quarantine.

Did you go to any other city or country in the last two weeks? If not, then you do not have to fill anything in this field.
If you did, then the first thing you have to fill is the name of that city or country in 1st city, against name field. Likewise fill all the names of places you have been to (in other city or country) in the last 2 weeks. In the second row, you have to fill the date on which you came to the city where your JEE Main 2021 exam centre is.
