#GATE 2017 - Frequently Asked Question

  • Can I use one e-mail address to fill multiple application forms?

  • Answer - NO, one e-mail address can be used to submit only one application form.

  • Why should I choose three examination cities?

  • A candidate will most likely be allotted a centre in the examination city of his/her first choice. Only in cases where there are too many candidates opting for a certain city as their first choice, the other two choices shall be relevant.A candidate is required to fill his/her choices of cities to appear for the examination, but should remember that because of operational constraints, the GATE committee reserves the right to add a new city or remove an existing one, and allot a city that may not be any of the choices of a candidate.For candidates from the six other countries, the Centers from that particular country shall be only one choice (by default) and these are: Abu Dhabi.Dubai (UAE), Addis Ababa (Ethiopia), Colombo (Sri Lanka), Dhaka (Bangladesh), Kathmandu (Nepal) and Singapore.

  • My power/internet connection failed during the application process, what do I do?

  • Please login to the GATE 2017 application website https://appsgate.iitr.ernet.in again and continue the application process.

  • Only SC/ST/PwD candidates have been asked to upload the category certificates.What about the OBC (non-creamy layer)candidates? Do they have to upload the category certificate too?

  • NO. Category certificate is required only to decide the rate for the application fee. As far as the GATE 2017 examination is concerned, only SC/ST/PwD candidates and all women candidates qualify for a reduced fee. That is the purpose of asking for the certificate.This aspect does not apply to candidates from Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Nepal, Singapore, Sri Lanka and UAE

  • My net banking account has been debited (money taken out) more than once. How do I get the money back?

  • This can happen if your bank account was used more than once or you pressed refresh or back/forward button of your internet browser. Please check your bank account after 48 hours. Any unaccounted or excess money that was received on behalf of GATE 2017 from this account will automatically be returned (credited) to the same bank account.

  • My bank account has been debited (money taken out), but GATE Application website says that the payment has not been received. What do I do?

  • This happens because of some failure in internet transactions (including failure of internet connection at your end). As soon as possible, you MUST initiate a fresh payment process on the GATE application website, and make the payment again. The money that was debited (taken out) from your account in the first attempt, will be credited (put back) to your bank account within seven working days. You will be charged only once. Any excess/unaccounted debits will be returned to you.

  • Which identification card numbers shall be accepted in application form?

  • Only numbers of the following identification cards shall be accepted: Passport, PAN card, Voter ID, Aadhaar UID, college ID, Employee Identifiction Card for Indian candidates and For International candidates, ONLY a valid Passport/ Government issued ID/College ID/ Employee ID shall be accepted as the recognized identification.

  • If I am in the final year of my degree program, but do not yet have my marksheet (transcript) of my previous year/semester, what certificate do I upload?

  • If a candidate who is in the final year of his/her degree program, but does not have official marksheet of previous semester/year issued at the time of application, the candidate may upload a provisional certificate issued by the Institute mentioning that the candidate is studying in the final year of the program. In case, no provisional certificate is issued by the Institute, a Letter with Signature and Seal issued by the Head of Institute/Dean/Registrar/Head of Department, where the candidate is studying must be uploaded. The content of the Letter should be as shown below.
