State-wise Exam Cities

The cities having centers for online exam papers are different from those for offline exam papers.  First determine if the paper of your choice is to be conducted online or offline, and check for a city in the state of your choice.  You will have to provide two preferences for Exam Cities.  Also seen in the table is the Zonal GATE Office (Either of the IITs or IISc).  This Zonal office will be your point of contact for any enquiries regarding your exam center.

In case of non-availability of seats in cities of your choice, Zonal GATE offices will make an effort to allot a center in a nearby city.
