This is a very common curiosity among GATE aspirants, they start with this question, which IIT is going to organize GATE exam this year. Also they think that the difficulty of GATE exam depends on the organizing institute. Also previous GATE papers conducted by that institute would help them preparing GATE and also give an advantage.

Predicating the difficulty of GATE exam based on organizing institute may put you in a strange situation because difficulty is independent of organizing Institute. GATE organizing institute just take responsibility of managing application forms, taking question set from different professors from different IITs and making random choices on question and conducting exam.
