Hi Sir,

Mohit Singh

You will receive payment confirmation mail within 24hrs.
@ajaysoni1924 GO soft copy will be release in  coming few days as per description ,js calm down wait few more days and it will be beneficial to all of us .
Will the soft copy of Go for gate 2019 be available for downloading?
Now online payment is available. Softcopy will be available as last year but this time for printing we will be using a slightly different printer friendly version.
Then when will the soft copy for gate 2019 be available for downloading?
By June end.
@Arjun Sir, I had preordered the book on 15th May. I want to change my shipping address. How should I edit my form?
You should have got email from the google form rt? Clicking on it should allow you to edit the response. If this does not work also, before books are dispatched you will get an email for address confirmation and then you can mail back the new address.
Sir I didn't receive any links in the confirmation mail. I will mail the new address at the time of dispatch. Thank you Sir.
Sure. The link was not with the confirmation mail but while filling the google form which is now not active. Current users can correct the address during book dispatch time in another 2 weeks.
@Arjun sir,

  I did payment for GO hard copy.. but i didn't get any confirmation mail from you.
If it is by PayU then there is no confirmation by me - they'll be sending you the conformation.
I did via payU. I got confirmation from payU. but I thought that "i will get confirmation from GO".

Thanks Arjun sir
Nopes. That's auto confirmed by PayU. Before book is dispatched, you'll get address confirmation email.
Can I pay now..?
Yes, it is open

@Arjun Sir

Hello Sir

I did payment yesterday.

How long will the book get (Which date book will reach to my address)?

That is mentioned in the post - before June end. First set of book is going to be printed this week. There are a lot of changes compared to last time, which are added to the change log.

Hello Arjun Sir

2018 Question are not include this website So Given the Link of Softcopy 2018 Question Must be added . 

In this link - showing the older version of GO PDF

sir when will  go 2019 pdf will be available online
Arjun Sir, When can we expect the address confirmation mail to come? Will we get the books by June?
yes, by next week beginning you should get the address confirmation mail. Books should be dispatched by beginning of the last week of June.
is go book still available for delivery can i pay now?
Arjun sir ,I did my payment today when can I expect the hardcopy?
Those who pay till today - June 17 can expect the book by June end.
@Arjun sir

Address Confirmation mail not received till now?
Arjun sir , when we will be getting the confirmation address mail?
Arjun Sir, We still haven't got any mail regarding address confirmation. When can we expect the books be delivered?? I have paid in first week of June in lieu of getting the books by July. Will it be delayed?
Arjun sir ,I did my payment today when can I expect the delivery of hardcopy?
Arjun sir,when I will receive the confirmation mail and the soft copy???
Next week everyone should get the address confirmation email and shipping date is next Saturday or the Monday after that. A lot of changes happened in the book and that is why the book got delayed by a week. Many people have been working day and night to make the book as perfect as possible - you can see the result :)

Softcopy will take 7-10 days after the hardcopy is shipped because we have to remake everything for the softcopy - it is colored and and links are clickable unlike the hardcopy.

250 books are being shipped in the first set. I guess current order number is about 200. All who ordered early have helped us immensely in improving the book as much as possible and hence will soon (within 1 week of book delivery) get a unique code in the email which they can use around October-November in this site - most probably for getting a PDF of additional practice questions.
Thank you so much sir
Thank you sir
@Arjun Sir Can I pay money today(25 june 2018)  or tomorrow (26 june 2018 ) ??
yes, the book will be available. But the first set being shipped early next week will be for first 250 orders.
Arjun sir, is  GO Hard copy only contain questions?. or it contain any topic introduction before the  questions?
Arjun sir,still I didn't receive any address confirmation mail ,I want to change the shipping address I gave  ... Please help
@Arjun Suresh sir, i also didn't get any address confirmation mail on ([email protected]) mail id.
Yes sir @Arjun Suresh , haven't got any confirmation message or mail yet

Is there anyone who ordered before June 29 and not received any confirmation email? Those ordered on or after June 29 will receive by Thursday.

Hi, @Arjun Suresh, Whats the status on shipment of books, i guess books were supposed to be shipped last Wednesday according to one of your comment.
Tracking details are sent for everyone who ordered till July 5.

For those ordering now, books will be dispatched in maximum a week time. PayU confirmation email is the only mail you will be receiving.
I received my GO hardcopy today and I have to say the amount of work put in is really commendable, page quality is awesome and really loved the QR codes feature, binding could have been better and in some pages the QR codes got smudged but no issues, the shortened URL is given so just type in directly, books are worth the delay faced, better order book than taking printout of soft copy, really appreciate the work done and selfless efforts takan by the team in providing such high quality material in such low price where all the other institutions are charging hefty price for substandard material.

PS: Books are received in Chennai so don't worry guys you will get yours.
Arjun sir, i ordered hard copy of gobook 2019 on 11july18.I received transaction successful msg from payUmoney.But But i didnt receive order confirmation msg or tracking details for my order. Kindly provide me the solution. Thanks
read previous comments.
Thanks Vinay. Yes, some pages in Vol 1 had the smudging problem - I guess it is only for less than 10 pages.

@Uma Books are sent today, so you'll get tracking email today or tomorrow. There is no separate confirmation email.
@Arjun sir please tell when will i get tracking details, i have ordered go hardcopy on 6th july 18
Thanks Arjun sir
Hello @Arjun sir

Thank you so much, sir

Today I Received my order.
Hello Arjun Sir and GateOverflow Team,

I have just received the GO Hardcopy, I must say Gateoverflow team members and Arjun Sir have made great efforts. It's really selfless efforts by a team.

The Go hardcopy quality is really amazing.

Thanks for all seniors who have worked really hard to give great answers and Arjun sir for providing the best platform.
Please reply @ARJUN SIR
Hello Arjun Sir,
I just received my GO Hardcopies.

All those precious hours you and other community members have invested
is reflected in the quality of the books.

The efforts and hardwork of the entire community is really commendable.
Thanks to the entire GO community.
And what about those who have not received tracking details. I have msg on go several times but noone respond to my message
I have orderd my books on 6th july and the status of my book i dont know.
Please reply when will you send tracking details @Arjun sir
hello sir i  made payment  yesterday but did not recieved any confirmation mail .....and when will  get  book payment id : 200067319

merchant id:446551-200067319
Once payment is done, Payu sends a confirmation mail rt? Thats the only confirmation mail. All books ordered till this Tuesday are sent and tracking details also mailed. Those ordered after that will be sent next Tuesday and Tracking mail on Wednesday.
Why is the soft copy version not being released till now? So that people will eventually buy the hardcopy which costs too much? This cheap business tactic to force people to buy the hardcopy is an insult to all the contributing members.

I am so disappointed it's July and they just don't care they want to become rich by this .WOW
@Ankit Is it? Then please make the hardcopy at any lower cost. And all contributions are in the site. I'm not going to make the softcopy - do whatever you want.
@Ankit if you don't know the behind the scenes of the book making, then please don't make an ignorant comment like this. A lot of people have worked day and night to make this book incredible. If you don't want to buy, then don't. It's up to you. But don't belittle such respected and awesome people. If you are getting something for free that is so good (perhaps the best in the market) then be grateful and humble. And be patient. Great things take time to come. Our parents had to work hard and wait for 22-23 yrs to give us all the facilities and for us to grow up and be awesome. Learn to be humble and try to give respect. That's all. Have a good day.
Sir also tracking my order since 8th of july but after that there is no update on order. i also complained this to indiapost via twitter. @Arjun Sir, any idea how much time does it take to delivered.

Tracking number CL010122383IN
@neetesh it's normal. All initial packages went as registered parcel and hence it takes a week to reach north India from TVM. Maximum by Monday you should get .I don't think they even see Twitter - they weren't ready to use Spreadsheet but use Excel.
@Arjun sir

I send complained on Twitter, they replied at that time, after that yesterday I got my Books.
Oh .what reply they gave? I'll also do :)
@Ankit-You can start to work with 2018 GO PDF. After you complete it, revise all subjects and then attempt GATE18 paper as a mock test. That would give you a real feel how would you perform in a test, set by an IIT, for an IIT. :)
I just received my GO Hardcopies. Believe me, guys I can't believe that such an amazing book with great page quality is possible in just 1300 rupees. I  think its a gift from Arjun Suresh sir and Gateoverflow team for Gate 2019 aspirant.
Thank you Arjun Suresh sir and Gateoverflow team.
The books are totally worth it. It is the best book I have ever seen for Gate prep. Great work. Really helpful.
@Ankit21   I even didn't buy the hardcopy of GO book and waiting for the softcopy but I know how much effort Arjun sir and his team are doing to make everything best.If Arjun sir wanted to earn from this book then he would have easily done it but his selfless service is really commendable.So have some patience or you can go for other resources which u think will be good for you. As far as i know, no other coaching institute or website can provide such a quality material which we get here.
Arjun Suresh Sir this is my consignment no.CL014669719IN
Sir actually consignment delevered on Ghaziabad cso on 12/07/2018 and in tracking details are sowing that item bagged to Ghaziabad city.
And they are saying to me that  address is only
VIJAY NAGAR BYPASS only.they are saying there is no reciever phone number in your consignment so unable to delivered it.they return it..
But sir my actual address is which are confermed by me in your confirmation mail is
Ph: 8076303251
Sir please do something.i am waiting for long time to receive my consignment.
I have just received the go hardcopy.
Thanks @Arjun sir

@Mohit The full address was definitely on the packet. Also, if delivery cannot be done, item should be in your Post Office for at least 3-4 days and only after that they can sent it back. So, please contact your post office and if they say they have sent it back, ask them why the update is not shown on site. I guess the postman is just sick of carrying 4kg. I have made a tweet here:

@Naveen You are welcome
