    Phase 1 
    Eligible candidates, who are included in the State rank list (Kerala Merit list and Service Quota rank list) prepared by the CEE can register fresh options during the first phase counseling, based on which and based on rank and category, allotment will be published. A Security deposit of Rs.10,000 will have to be paid at the time of option registration. For SC/ST/OE and other candidates who are eligible for fee concession, Rs.5000/- will have to be paid as Security deposit.
    Phase 2 
    In the second phase counseling, there is no facility for fresh option registration for the candidates. Only option confirmation /deletion/re- arrangement of the existing options in Phase 2 is possible. Option confirmation is compulsory to participate in Phase 2. Option registration will be available only if any new course is added to the list at this stage. If a candidate is allotted a seat in the first round and joined the allotted seat, his/her higher options will be retained and all those options listed below the allotted option will automatically be deleted thus enabling only upgradation/retention in the same seat. If a candidate joined in a seat in Phase 1 does not give confirmation of option in the Phase 2 he will not be considered for upgradation in Phase 2, but the seat joined in Phase 1 will be retained. So if a candidate joined in Phase 1 does not want upgradation in Phase 2, he/she may not confirm options or delete all options registered.
    Mop-up round of counseling

    After the first two rounds of counseling, Mop up counseling will start, which also offers fresh option registration to candidates. The net vacant seats due to Un-allotted/ Non joining of Round 2 will be published. Candidates shall register options to any seats they wish to join if allotted irrespective of the vacancy status notified as any vacancy that may arise during the counselling will be filled based on these options. As applicable category conversions of seats will take place in the mop-up allotment, while registering options for the mop-up allotment candidates are advised to take into account those probable vacancies too that may arise due to the applicable category conversion rules. The options registered in this Mop-up phase will be considered for Stray vacancy seat filling also. 

    Penalty Conditions in Mop-up Phase: 

    From the Mop up phase onwards, restriction has been implemented to candidates in order to avoid lapsing of seats and holding of AIQ seats and State quota seats thus blocking seats. Hence candidates are advised to exercise due diligence in exercising their options and do not file unwanted options to seats in which they do not wish to pursue studies. As a measure to prevent this, a separate Registration fee will be implemented to all candidates, who register fresh options in Mop up Phase.

      Registration fee amounting to the annual tuition fee of the seat opted, if opted only for Government seat or an amount of Rs.1,00,000 (Rupees One lakhs only) if opted also for a seat in Private Self financing Medical College may be set as registration fee. For SC/ST/OE and other candidates who are eligible for fee concession, the registration fee for Govt. /Pvt.medical college seats will be half of the above amounts respectively.

      The registration fee paid for Mop-up allotment will be adjusted in the fee of the course, if the candidate gets an allotment or else will be refunded after the end of counselling.

      The registration fee paid for Mop-up phase of those candidates who do not join the seat allotted in Mop-up or stray vacancy filling allotment will be treated as penalty and will not be refunded. 

    Stray Vacancy Filling Phase: After the Mop up allotment, if any vacancies exist or arise, those vacancies shall be filled through Stray vacancy allotment. This may be conducted in online or offline mode and will be decided upon by the CEE at the time. For the Stray vacancy allotment, the options registered by the candidates during the Mop up round will be considered


    1. If vacancies exist even after an initial stray vacancy allotment and if there is sufficient time before the cut-off date for admissions prescribed by Dental Council of India, additional stray vacancy allotments may be conducted and finally list of eligible candidates shall be forwarded to the Colleges where vacancies exist and the allotment shall be done at the College level based on guidelines issued by CEE at the time.
    2. The various lists of candidates for the college level stray vacancy filling after the mop-up allotment will be prepared based on the options registered for the mop-up allotment process. So, candidates who intend to participate in the institution level stray vacancy filling should participate in the mop-up allotment also by registering fresh options for the mop-up allotment.
