BDS Management Quota Fees in India – 11 Lakhs Total Package in NAAC Accredited College

So there are many emails and messages in my inbox, and the core question in the email are what is the BDS management quota fees in India?

I am writing this article to give you a basic idea about the fees for management quota for BDS and also tips on choosing the best dental colleges in your budget.

If you want to get a complete idea about the BDS fee structure, how it varies, and more, then I would request that you go through the complete article. There are a few dental colleges that I have personally visited and suggested, which you can keep on your list.

Before knowing about the fees, I would suggest you go through my detailed article about BDS course details, BDS course fees, and salary after BDS. This will give you a complete idea about the course and its scope.

Important Advice: The DCI, or Dental Council of India, has made it clear through its notification that all dental colleges must be NAAC accredited. Even after repeated warnings and notices from DCI, almost 68% of dental colleges ignored it. In the coming 1-2 years, DCI will be taking strict action against colleges that are not NAAC accredited.

So, when choosing any dental college, please go for NAAC-accredited dental colleges only.

Or you can go through the notifications by DCI about NAAC below:
1. DCI 2007 Regulation.
2. DCI Notification Mandatory Dated October 2020.

Basic Idea About BDS Management Quota Fees

As the phrase says, these seats are directly under the college’s management. Before 2016, it was completely under the college’s management, and students could take the seat by paying the fees directly, no matter if their score was good or bad.

But things have changed, and even for management quota seats for BDS, the candidate must qualify for NEET-UG entrance. Even if you are ready to pay lakhs extra, you cannot be admission to the BDS course. The same is true in the case of direct admission; even if you need direct admission to BDS, you must qualify for the NEET entrance exam.

Most of you might know about this, but I just want to clear this up here.

Management Quota for BDS in Different States

Different states in India have different seat matrices and each state will have different quotas. For example, apart from government seats, all the BDS seats in UP come under the management quota. In Karnataka, only 35% of the seats are covered by management quota fees.

If you are looking for information regarding colleges in Karnataka, then you can go through my detailed post about BDS fees in Karnataka.

So before choosing any college, see the percentage of seats that come under the management quota.

Let’s Talk About Management Quota Fees Now…

There are more than 300 dental colleges in India, and the BDS management quota fees range from Rs.1.5 Lakhs to Rs.7 lakhs per year, excluding the hostel and food charges.

Now you might be thinking, how come there is a huge difference in the fees slab? Many low-quality dental colleges in India are not able to survive because of a lack of students. To fill the vacant seats, they will lower their tuition fees just to run the college. These are the colleges that charge very low fees.

However, 5% of colleges in India charge very low fees for similar reasons, but these are colleges with the facilities and qualities.

Yes, there are a few hidden gems, like dental colleges in India, of which people are not aware and charge very low fees.

I would classify dental colleges into 4 categories, which you can just go through. These are from my personal experience and research.

  • Known Private Dental Colleges: These are the best dental colleges in India, like Manipal Dental College and MS Ramaiah Dental College. They charge around Rs.5 Lakhs to Rs.7 lakhs per annum.
  • Branded Private Dental Colleges: These are colleges with beautiful buildings that run marketing campaigns to fill up their seats. I am not giving any examples of these colleges and don’t want to demote them. Their fees will range from Rs.4 lakhs to Rs.5 lakhs per annum.
  • Low fees-Low Quality Dental Colleges: Many dental colleges in India provide BDS admission at fees as low as Rs.1 lakh per year. These types of colleges don’t have proper faculties, facilities, and patient exposure.
  • NAAC Accredited & Low Fees -Hidden Gems: There are a few colleges in India that students or parents do not know because they have very low marketing budgets. The fees will be reasonable, and you can expect somewhere around Rs.8 lakhs to Rs.10 lakhs total package for the course. And the quality of education and facilities will be twice what you will be paying.

If you want to know about the lowest fees for BDS in India, then you can go through my detailed post about BDS fees in private colleges.

I have also written detailed articles about the BDS management fee structure of colleges in different states. You can go through that below:

BDS Management Fees I Can Provide in Good College

As I told you, I am in contact with a few good colleges that provide the best facilities at low fees. I have personally visited these colleges, and I feel really good about them.

From my end, the best fee structure for a BDS management quota in a NAAC accredited dental college will be Rs.11 lakhs total package, including hostel, food, and material charges. You can review the yearly fees given below.

First YearRs.2.75 Lakhs
Second YearRs.2.75 Lakhs
Third YearRs.2.75 Lakhs
Fourth YearRs.2.75 lakhs
InternshipNo Fees, only have to pay for the hostel which is not mandatory.

I can provide the college in Delhi NCR. The college is more than 20 years old and has the latest dentistry technologies.

Apart from the tuition fees, the student has to pay examination fees directly to the university.

How to choose a dental college for management quota?

There are many things you have to keep in mind while choosing a dental college to join for the BDS course. Go through the complete article, and you will get a complete idea.

These are important things I feel you must keep in mind before joining any dental college for BDS in India.

#1 Patient Flow: The number of average patients per day

Dentistry is a practical course. During the five-year course, you must have experience treating patients. The first two years will be completely pre-clinical, and the second and third years will be clinical.

You must enquire whether the college has a decent number of patients per day so that every student can learn different treatments.

#2 Patient Exposure: Whether the students are given experiences with different kinds of treatments

Even if the college has excellent patient exposure, it is not enough. The students must be given a chance to treat the patients, right?

So many colleges in India have excellent patient flow, but the management or the faculties in the college are not ready to let the students do the treatment. So enquire all these through your sources or you can even contact us for the same.

#3 Faculties:

The college must have full-time faculty who are ready to guide the students at any time. There are private dental colleges in India with renowned, experienced, and award-winning faculty. But as per my suggestion, that is not what you need.

You need faculty who are ready to teach you and help you grow. Check whether the college has full-time faculty.

#4 Equipment and Technologies: OPG, CBCT, Endodontic Microscope, CAD-CAM, etc.

I am not telling you to join colleges with all the latest technologies and research centers. However, the college must at least have perfectly working dental chairs and proper ceramic labs.

It would be very good if the college had CBCT, CAD-CAM, an Endodontic microscope, and more.

#5 Recognition & Affiliation

Check whether the Dental Council of India recognizes the college and is affiliated with a good university. A good university means one conducts all the exams on time and has a decent passing percentage.

#6 Budget

Every family has a budget for education, and you must consider that seriously. Whatever the fees, you have to keep around 3-4 lakhs extra in mind as there will be basic expenses and academic expenses, too.

#7 Hidden Fees and the College Management

Enquire whether the college charges any extra fees regularly. Make it clear with the college, get that written in the student’s name, and keep that for future responses.

Many college managements pressurize the students during exam time just to loot some money. Please enquire through your sources about the college management and hidden charges, too.

#8 Stipend

This is not something you have to focus on much! There are colleges in India that pay stipends to students during their internships. It ranges from Rs.2000 to Rs.17,000 depending on each college. Never join a dental college after seeing that they are giving huge stipends. Focus on your skills and knowledge.

I guess you got an idea of how to shortlist the best dental colleges in India. If you need any support from my end regarding BDS management quota fees, then you can contact me directly.
