Baba farid university of health science,punjab has not cleared that 2008-2009 bds batch will have 1 year intership or not.
It is applicable to all the universities coming under DCI so you will be having the same but the format of examination should be decided by your respective University.

Hi Dinesh, it is possible to get a change of college. You need to approach both your University and if the other college is in a different university contact them to apply for a transfer. Even your college needs to give you a NOC (No objection certificate) for your transfer to take place without trouble.

You need to visit your University and ask for NOC, and then visit the State you are planning to transfer your degree to and apply for the transfer. You need to visit your State Dental Council to get the required information.
