356 BDS seats vacant in private colleges in Haryana

University of Health Sciences (UHS) report that over 64% of the total seats for Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) remained vacant for the 2022 admissions. The university has completed its fifth and final counselling process with a total of 194 seats filled. The Dean of the University of Health Sciences (UHS), Academic Affairs, Dr Ashok Chauhan, confirms that about 365 seats are vacant with admitting only 7 students in the final counselling round. 

The University of Health Sciences (UHS) started the counselling process for the Bachelor of Dental Surgery course in February 2022. To their dismay, only 25% of the seats were filled in the first counselling. The first counselling was followed by four more counselling sessions, yet only 36% of seats were filled. Further, a total of eight institutes with a seating capacity of 550 students, including government colleges were available. The reports suggest that this is the first time, that not even 50% of the seats were filled.

Among all the colleges, the Post-Graduate Institute of Dental Surgery (PGIDS), Rohtak, is the only college to fill all the seats by 100%. It is due to the infrastructure, ultramodern equipment, and best faculty that even the toppers only opt for the PGIDS, Rohtak for Bachelor of Dental Surgery. Further, about 85 seats at Yamuna Institute of Dental Sciences and Research, Gadholi (Yamunanagar) are vacant. Similarly in Swami Devi Dyal Hospital and Dental College, Panchkula about 82 seats are vacant, in PDM College, Bahadurgarh 80 seats are vacant, 42 seats are vacant in Jan Nayak Ch.

Experts are of the view that it is due to the lack of job opportunities in the government sector, and low possibilities of growth in private sectors that candidates do not opt for BDS. 10 years ago, BDS was a demanded course in India, due to the lack of proper medical colleges. However, the experts suggest another reason for the lack of candidates in BDS to be the lack of knowledge of the common people about their oral health. Also, some suggest that the high fees of the private colleges may also be a reason for the vacancy of seats in BDS.
