The Baba Farid University of Health Sciences (BFUHS), Faridkot, has invited applications for the combined counselling for admission to MBBS/BDS among other undergraduate courses in all medical and dental colleges in the state, including private universities and minority institutions.

BFUHS will hold counselling for MBBS and BDS courses. The NEET-qualified aspirants can submit their application online till June 23.

However, the varsity is yet to announce the seat distribution and fee structure for the undergraduate courses. It also made mandatory for the candidates to submit affidavits of state domicile by their parents and guardians that the student has not obtained the benefit of residence for admission in MBBS/BDS courses in any other state/UT except central counselling by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).

BFUHS registrar Arvind Sharma said the university will hold a meeting with the officials concerned on Monday to decide on the distribution of seats for undergraduate courses.

“The university is extra vigilant this time as the candidates allegedly took multiple domicile benefits in the past years. Therefore, we have made mandatory to submit an affidavit,” said Sharma.
