You have to get in touch with GATE-2019 authorities.

GATE-2019 admit-card will have your GATE2019 registration number. You have to apply to Indian Oil with GATE-2019 registration number. Otherwise Indian Oil will not be able to retrieve your GATE score.

Indian Oil will not consider any candidate if he/she fails to apply in Indian Oil on-line within the stipulated window of application. To be eligible for consideration a candidate has to necessarily apply during this window of application.

any field will be permitted

Where the university does not give percentage and only gives letter grades/CGPA/OGPA, how to fill-in the % of marks in the online application

The grade/CGPA should be converted into % as per conversion formula applied by the Institute/ University. In case of non availability of any such formula, Indian Oil will have the liberty to convert
that into % by applying its own procedure as it will consider right.

I am not sure whether I fulfil the criteria for getting benefit under OBC category. What do I do?

The onus of proving that you are eligible to get the concession of belonging to OBC (non-creamy
layer) rests on you. Couple of suggestions:
 a. Checkout the latest central list of OBCs published by the National Commission for Backward Classes (NCBC). The relevant link is http://ncbc.nic.in/backwardclasses/index.htmlIt. For getting the benefit
of reservation, the caste/ sub-caste/community essentially has to be in the central list. If the caste you belong to appears in a state list but not in the central list, you are not eligible for getting the reservation benefits

b. Be sure that you do not belong to creamy layer. Your OBC certificate must also have a clear mention that you belong to noncreamy layer for getting the reservation benefits.
c. OBC certificate has to be as per the proper format prescribed by Govt. of India. In case your certificate is too old and not as per format, please gets a new one issued by a competent authority.

At the time of verification of the caste certificate at our end, at the time of recruitment or at any stage after that, if it is found out that the candidate has obtained reservation benefits by submitting, false/ incorrect certificate/
information; he/she would not be considered for further selection process/ be terminated from the
service of Indian Oil immediately.

Who is entitled for relaxation/concessions admissible to People with Disabilities (PwBD) candidates

Persons with disability of 40% or more will get the benefits admissible to PwBD candidates. It is necessary to have a valid disability certificate issued by the medical board constituted for the purpose and duly countersigned by the medical superintendent/ CMO/ Head of hospital. Candidates whose degree of disability is less than 40% are not entitled for concessions admissible to PwBD candidates

My name on GATE Application is mentioned as Gupta S K while in my Class X pass certificate the same has been mentioned as Sunil Kumar Gupta. Please advise how should I fill in my name while applying for Indian Oil?

One has to essentially mention the same name in your GATE application and application to Indian
Oil. In case, there is a mismatch in names (including the way it is written), in GATE/ IOC application with that of a document like Class X/XII/ graduation mark-sheet the onus will be on the candidate to establish that both the persons are same. If Indian Oil is not satisfied with the explanation/ proof provided, the candidature will be rejected.

Do I need to mail /post my complete application form with photograph affixed?

Completed application need not be mailed or sent through post to Indian Oil. Application is to be brought at the time of GD/GT & PI

How can I communicate with Indian Oil, if I have any specific query?

We have a two tier process for this. First, please call on the telephone numbers, given on your online application module. Most of the queries will be addressed at this level. In case you have queries, which cannot be replied from the help-line number or if their reply is not satisfactory, you may write to us at recruit2019@indianoil.in.
