Online Netbanking 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. You will have to login with your bank’s Netbanking (or Internet Banking) user ID and password.
  3. The fee amount and bank charges will be shown to you, and you have to confirm that the payment is for GATE 2014.
  4. Once you confirm and the payment is successful, you will be redirected back to the GATE Online Application Website.
  5. If you have some difficulty (due to internet connection or power failure), 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 , however, GOAPS does not acknowledge any fee payment, then the money will be credited back to your account within three 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. You may wish to switch to the offline challan payment.

Offline Challan Payment Details

  1. If you had chosen offline payment option while filling in the form, you will be provided with a copy of the challan in triplicate (PDF file) with your details already filled in. You have to print this file on an A4 size paper, and have to fill in a few more details such as date and signature.
  2. Once the PDF of the online application form is generated, you have to wait for at least 48 hours to visit the bank with the filled challan and make the fee payment.
  3. You may take the challan to any of the nearest branches of State Bank of India (SBI) or Syndicate Bank and make the application fees payment. Note that for this, you do not need to have an account in that branch.
  4. The bank teller will verify the details printed on the challan with the data available on their Management Information System (MIS) and then accept the payment. Note that your payment will NOT be accepted if you go to the bank earlier than 48 hrs as mentioned in Point no. 2 above. This is because it will take some time after generation of PDF online application to reflect the data in the respective bank MIS.
  5. The bank will retain one copy of the challan and give you back the remaining two copies: one of which you are required to send along with the printed application form, while the other is for your record.
