The BJP has so far announced candidates for 167 seats in the 182-member assembly.
Among those who figure in the third list are four ministers.
"Pandya has not yet figured in the list since his Ellisbridge seat is still being discussed by the state unit," party spokesman Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said in New Delhi.
The four ministers are I K Jadeja (Dhrangadhra), Nitibhai Patel (Kadi), Iswarbhai Makwana (Jotana) and Sundarsinh Chauhan (Mememdabad).
Besides the four ministers, the three sitting legislators featuring in the list are Karsanbhai Odedra (Kutiyana), Mangaldas Patel (Mansa) and Prahladbhai Patel (Visnagar).
The lone woman candidate in the list is Ramilaben Desai from Kheralu.
The party has so far fielded 10 women, but no member of the minority community.
