AMU DENTAL COLLEGE RECOGNISED
Aligarh: Union Health Ministry has recognised Dental College of Aligarh Muslim University. Dental Council of India is also expected to give its approval. The issue of recognition of the AMU Dental College was pending since long. Dental Council of India’s team visited the College several times for inspection but returned without doing anything. The test for admission to BDS College of AMU was conducted on June 6 along with MBBS aspirants. The results of MBBS test were declared only after four days of the test while the results of BDS students have not been declared even after two months. According to an official, the government had put a restriction on two medical and eight dental colleges of Uttar Pradesh for admission of new students for the academic year 2002-2003 before recognition.
The results of the AMU Dental college would be declared after recognition, said the official.

Students who come from far off places have lost one precious academic year. Moreover, the deadline for admission to the university i.e. August 10 has also passed.
