GATE 2013 Offline Challan Payment Details

  1. If you had chosen offline payment option while filling in the form, you will be provided with a copy of the challan in triplicate (PDF file) with your details filled in. You have to print it out on an A4 paper, and have to fill in a few more details such as date and signature.

  4. The bank teller will verify the details printed on the challan with the data available at the bank and then accept the payment. Note that your payment will NOT be accepted if you go to bank earlier than 48 hrs as mentioned above.
