"He has suffered a mild linear fracture in the vertebra," Dr. D.B. Singh, deputy medical superintendent, Kailash Hospital, Behror, told IANS on phone.
Shravan was admitted to the Kailash Hospital in the morning, the doctor said.
Singh said that a panel of doctors will review his situation late on Wednesday afternoon to decide the further course of action.
The accident occurred at around 5.30 a.m. when Shravan was travelling from Noida to Jaipur. Near Behror, a nilgai suddenly came running in front of the car. To avoid a collision, the car instead hit the divider.
The car's driver suffered minor injuries, doctor said.
Nadeem-Shravan music directors are known for their work in films like "Aashiqui" and "Saajan", but they no longer work with each other.
