Default Help!!! Filling application form for Step 1 ECFMG: Medical Student from India.

I am an international medical student from India currently doing my internship. I have few queries and need some help regarding Item 20, Item 21 and others. Its a humble request from those who have completed their Step 1 examination and those who have filled out their forms.
Any help would be deeply appreciated.

1. What can I put as a National Identification Number in India: I am in process of applying for Passport so dont have it now. Can I use my PAN Card??

2. Item 20. Other Institutions Attended:

I did my 41/2 years of MBBS from Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College, Belgaum and currently undergoing my rotatory Internship training from District Hospital, Lucknow which is not a part of my university. Do I have to mention it in my application form as another institution attended?

3. Item 21. Clinical Clerkships:

Do we have to mention all the rotations we did in our hospital when we were in 2nd, 3rd and 4th year like Medicine, Gen Surgery, OBG/GYN, Pediatrics, Orthopedics etc etc? Or we dont have to mention it cause I read somewhere that we have to fill those clerkships which we attended at a different medical school.

I am really confused on how to proceed with these questions and I request anyone who faced similar problems or those who have completed their application process to help me out.

Thank you.
