    Protected Sub DropDownList1_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        Dim DDL_val As String
        Dim flag As String
        Dim TC_ID As String
       
        TC_ID = Session("SessionTC_ID")

Your dropdownlist is enabled with AutoPostBack. So when you select any item, PostBack occurs and Page_Load event will trigger.

Check in Page_Load event, whether dropdownlist binding code is outside IsPostBack check. If so on each Selection on Dropdownlist, dropdownlist will get rebind and lost its selection.
Page_Load Event
If (!IsPostBack)
{
 // Dropdownlist Bind Code should be here
}

Open in new window


Just verify this case
