2 Administration     GATE is administered and conducted jointly by the Indian Institute of Science and seven Indian Institutes of Technology on behalf of the National Coordination Board (NCB) – GATE. candidates with Master’s degree in Engineering/Technology/Architecture may seek admission to relevant Doctoral programmes with scholarship/assistantship without appearing in the GATE examination. The performance of the candidate in GATE will be considered for admission. The criteria for postgraduate admission with scholarship/assistantship are different for different admitting institutions. 1. The management of the postgraduate scholarship/assistantship is also the responsibility of the admitting institution. The score is used for admissions to post-graduate engineering programmes (eg.

The admitting institution could however prescribe minimum passing percentage of marks in the interview.1 Financial Assistance A valid GATE score is essential for obtaining a financial assistance during Masters programmes and direct Doctoral programmes in Engineering/Technology/Architecture. The score may also be used by Public sector units for employment screening purposes. Some colleges/institutes specify GATE qualification as the mandatory requirement even for admission without MHRD scholarship/assistantship. and Doctoral programs in relevant branches of Science in an Institution supported by the MHRD or other Government assistantships.D.. reservation of seats or award of scholarship/assistantship Nevertheless. the following procedure is to be adopted for admission to the postgraduate programmes (Master and Doctoral) with MHRD scholarship/assistantship. 1.
