GATE Organizing Institute: Year Wise List

Another frequently asked question by GATE applicants is about GATE organizing institute. This question is asked with the common misconception that the question paper would be similar to earlier years or the toughness of GATE question paper depends on organizing institute. We also created an easy to use ad-free mobile app for GATE syllabus, previous year papers with keys, gate calculator, virtual calculator, and more. Download for iStudy for all GATE preparation needs.

The reality is that the organizing institute will only moderate the paper setting process. Professors from almost all the IITs and IISc are requested for question papers. After collecting papers from selected professors a common paper is set. It’s neither a paper from a single professor nor form a single institute.

I suggest all the GATE applicants get ready for the toughest exam possible. If we are ready for the worst situation surviving would easy and given a chance we may knock the doors of IITs.

In this post, I tried to give the best possible information about GATE organizing institute after visiting different blogs and forums. The list of GATE organizing institutes is as follows.

GATE Organizing Institute List

Year Organizing Institute
2021 IIT Bombay
2020 IIT Delhi
2019 IIT Madras
2018 IIT Guwahati
2017 IIT Roorkee
2016 IISc Bangalore
2015 IIT Kanpur
2014 IIT Kharagpur
2013 IIT Bombay
2012 IIT Delhi
2011 IIT Madras

2008 IISc Bangalore
2007 IIT Kanpur
2006 IIT Kharagpur
2005 IIT Bombay
2004 IIT Delhi
2003 IIT Madras

2000 IIT Kharagpur
1999 IIT Bombay
1998 IIT Delhi
1997 IIT Madras
1996 IISc Banglore
1995 IIT Kanpur

This is just for the information of GATE applicants to avoid their curiosity and a part of GATE Preparation Guide. It really doesn’t matter which IIT is conducting GATE. If someone is trying to interpret the toughness of paper then it is just an imagination.

I tried to make as accurate as possible, but still, if you find something missing or wrong please feel free to correct me by dropping a comment. Do not hesitate to give your suggestions or share some valuable information with thousands of students.

  18. piyush

    sir,i am in final year B.E.(ECE) ,,and unable to cover upto 6.5 cgpa,,,is it possible to get in 7 old IIT’s or IISC with 6.0 cgpa on 10 pointer scale,,,,please help me ,,,which IIT intake by direct GATE score rather than ,,,,

    1. c1

      as much as i know iit delhi have criteria for cgpa 7.5 iit madras u cn join and no idea abt others

    2. BIDESH


      6.0 CGPA is more than enough for admission in any IIT.
      But IITD, IITK puts weightage for your cgpa as well as gate score.
      So getting in IITD and IITK would be difficult.
      All other IIT’s just see your gate score.
      So prepare well. Good luck

    3. sanjay

      iit madras, iit bombay, iit roorkee, iit hydrabad have kept their criteria 6.0 out of 10. so you can apply in these iits.

  19. shashank
