The important dates for CAT 2020 have been announced and registrations have started from 5 August. Interested aspirants have until September 23, 2020, to submit the CAT application form and pay the CAT application fee. The application process for CAT is pretty straightforward. Candidates have to fill all of the details required in the CAT application form, upload their photograph and signature, pay the application fee and submit the application form.
