Online Net-banking Payment Details
  1. From the GATE Online Application Processing System (GOAPS), you will be redirected to the website of the bank of your choice.
  2. The fee can be paid with net-banking or debit card or e-challan.
  3. The fee amount and bank charges will be shown to you, and you have to confirm that the payment is for GATE 2018.
  4. Once you confirm and the payment is successful, you will be redirected back to the GATE Online Application Website.
  5. If you have a difficulty (due to internet connection or power failure, for example), and you are not sure whether your payment has been processed or not, then please login back to GOAPS and check the status of the payment. You can also check the status from your bank.
  6. In case the fee amount has been debited from your bank account and GOAPS does not acknowledge any fee payment, then the money will be credited back to your account within seven working days.
  7. In such a case, you may initiate a fresh payment using GOAPS, even without waiting for the money to be credited back to your account, so that your application is on time.
  8. Once the payment is successful a “Fee Payment Number” will be generated which is unique and MUST be saved by the candidate as it will be used in the later stages when he/she fills up the GATE 2018 Application form.
