CHENNAI: After the end of mop-up counseling, 30% of BDS seats, including 35 seats in government quota, are still vacant in self-financing dental colleges across the state.

The state government will hand over 540 vacant seats to managements of private colleges who will be allowed to independently admit students based on NEET 2018 scores.

Last week, the Directorate of Medical Education called for fresh applications after it exhausted the previous rank lists with 264 seats in government quota and more than 600 seats in management quota vacant at the end of four days of counseling.

Fees were also reduced by the college managements from Rs 6 lakh to Rs 2 lakh. But there was no impact. A total of 318 candidates came for admission in government quota and 65 for management quota.

The selection committee secretary Dr N Selvarajan said, “We have allotted 237 seats under government quota and 64 under management quota."
