Hello there! Welcome to my article on the BDS Admission Procedure in Haryana!

Haryana, a state in the country’s north, was once a part of Punjab before gaining its independence on November 1, 1966. Haryana surrounds the national capital, Delhi, and a sizable portion of Haryana state is included in India’s booming National Capital Region. 

Haryana shares borders with Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Uttar Pradesh.

The NEET UG counseling is administered online through their website (https://dmer.haryana.gov.in/). Regular updates can be obtained from the web portal of DMEHR Haryana https://www.uhsr.ac.in/ and their designated admission web portal http://uhsrugcounselling.com. 

Therefore, BDS aspirants planning for BDS admission in state-affiliated colleges of Haryana have to participate in the state counseling of Haryana through these websites.

On the other hand, the deemed dental colleges conduct their counseling under the Medical Counseling Committee of India (MCC) through their website, https://mcc.nic.in/. Hence, if you are a BDS aspirant planning for BDS admission in deemed dental colleges of Haryana, you have to participate in the all-India counseling for deemed universities conducted by the MCCI.

To ease your understanding, I will outline the process to participate in Haryana’s state counseling for BDS admission.

Registration Process

Interested candidates must register online through the admission web portal of DMERH, Haryana, which is http://uhsrugcounselling.com. You must fill in your identity and NEET exam credentials and create your login ID and Password for future use.

A minimal registration fee might be applicable; approximately 1250-2500 rupees, based on the applicant category, must be paid during registration. It is recommended to download the proof of payment of the registration fee, which might also be required during the document verification.

Upload Documents

Once you register, you will be directed to fill in the remaining details and upload a few mandatory documents to complete the registration process. The required credentials include your basic identity details such as name, date of birth, domicile, category, etc.  Additionally, your educational qualification details and grades, past school details like your marks obtained in the XII exam, and information about your NEET UG exam must be filled in.

After filling in these details, you have to save and proceed to upload a few mandatory documents. These documents usually include your NEET Score Card/Result, Aadhar Card, 10th & 12th Mark sheets, Caste certificates if applicable, passport-size photo, and signature of the applicant. The documents must usually be uploaded in PDF or JPEG formats, and only a specific designated size (usually 50kb to 500 kb) is accepted.

Submission of Form

Once this step is accomplished, you must declare the form and proceed with the final submission. It is worth noting that the details cannot be edited once you declare the form for final submission. Furthermore, a final copy of the application form must be downloaded, as it is a mandatory document to be produced during document verification.

After the registration round is over for all students, the DMHER notifies a state merit list based on the NEET BDS results.

Choice Filling/Option Entry

This is followed by the choice-filling round, which allows participants to choose the course and institution for a designated period. Once options are filled, they are considered final and cannot be edited after the last date announced. Hence, it is essential for BDS aspirants to acquire information regarding dental colleges before option entry to devise a plan for entering their preferences wisely.

After an option-entry round is completed, the provisional results are announced based on the NEET rank of the BDS aspirants. The provisional results are preceded by depositing the security deposit fee to the DMERH, Haryana, which is refundable. The amount ranges between 1,00,000 to 1,40,000 depending on the round of counseling one participates in.

One important point to remember here is downloading the payment receipt of the security deposit, which is later required to be presented during the document verification process.  As stated above, the first announcement of online results is only regarded as provisional. Hence, every provisionally allotted BDS aspirant has to mandatorily appear in person in front of the admission authorities at Pt. B.D. Sharma University of Health Sciences to ensure the final allotment and confirmation of admission.

  • Matriculation Certificate/High School/ICSE/Class X/Class XII or its equivalent certificate as proof of date of birth.
