Candidates should keep their login credentials handy. They will be able to download the hall tickets from the GATE Online Application Processing System (GOAPS) at gate.iitkgp.ac.in only. The url of the same is gate.iitkgp.ac.in/apps.html.
At GOAPS, candidates will have to login by filling three fields. In the first, they can fill either enrollment ID or email id. And in the second, they can only fill password. And in the third, one has to fill captcha code.
Forgot enrolment id or password – What to do?
In the event that one forgets login credentials, they can click the forgot login credentials button at GOAPS login. This leads to the option of getting the login credentials via OTP. To request OTP, candidates will have to enter their mobile number, and enrolment id or email address.
