IIT Kharagpur has released a notification regarding the future of the GATE 2022 examination after more than 23,000 petitioners sign an online petition to postpone this year's GATE examination due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in India. Check details below.

Will IIT Kharagpur Postpone GATE 2022?

With the rising number of voices in support of the postponement of the GATE 2022 examination due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in India, a notification has been issued by the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur. This IIT-K notification hinted towards the postponement of this year’s GATE examination. As of now, the GATE 2022 examination is scheduled to take place across various exam centres in India on the 05th, 06th, 12th and 13th February. 

In this notification, the GATE conducting body, which is IIT Kharagpur for the academic year 2022-23, has prioritised the health and safety of the exam-takers. It also says that the official dates for this year’s GATE examination might change in accordance with the rising number of Omicron cases in India.
