    • see the thing is GATE authority said that you can request for change in exam centre in GATE correction form, now if the requested exam centre have any free occupancy then only someone’s request for exam centre change will be completed otherwise not. Also it is possible also that your request is still in process and the authority is compiling everything thing for the documentation and confirmation so you can once check your status through GOAPS portal after sometime, if you saw no change in exam centre than possibly that exam centre does not have any free occupancy.
      The authority has cleared that their will a deduction for any change in correction form and the cost is 400 with GST whether there comes any changes or not, so that’s why 417 amount is deducted from your account.
