There won't be a new hardcopy for GATE 2021. I request most of the seniors to give their books to others -- the 2020 book is made in much better quality than even standard text books and should easily survive multiple years of usage.

@Arjun Sir it says book is not available on flipkart from where i can buy it and also when it will be available on flipkart .

@Piyush it is only on Amazon.
@Arjun Thanks SIr
Unfortunately, due to the lockdown Amazon services are stopped for 21 days. So, you wont be able to get the books until then.
@Arjun yes sir i got to know about this  till then i will make use of soft copy once the condition gets better i will get the hard ones.
@Arjun Sir Is NP NPC NPH in syllabus as it is there in GO Soft Copy ,both in Algorithms and TOC?
Problems related to P-NP-NPC uses reduction and is part of decidability portion in TOC. But one can avoid by-hearting the list of NPC problems.

Die to lockdown restrictions being relaxed, the hardcopy is now available to be purchased if you are in orange/green zones
Arjun sir please make  a kindle  edition or pdf available . Because of lockdown amazon is not delivering at my location. It may take months for things to normalize. Lockdown should not effect our preparation.

A few suggestions for future hardcopy edition, when and if there's going to be one:

1. Please swap page numbers and the subject name in the top header of each page. The page numbers should be on the outer corner, i.e. on leftmost corner for left side page, and on the rightmost corner on the right side page.

2. It's great that answers are removed entirely from the PDF, Will it be a good idea to shift all the answers to either:

    (a) End of the respective subject, so I don't accidentally see answers when there's like 4-5 questions on one page and the answers are immediately below. 

    (b) Decouple answers and questions, so people can by questions only edition and if they want to they can buy answers book too? otherwise they can always visit the site for answers. 

3. Book Cover, give more importance to subjects available inside the volume. Also, the order of subjects listed on the book cover should match the content inside. Also, text hierarchy for designing cover, e.g. vol-2 text should be bigger than the subjects.

4. Sort topics of each subject with number of questions rather than alphabetically?

Thank you @toxicdesire for suggestions. 

1. Isn't it already the case? Page numbers on the hardcopy are on the outer side only. If you're printing you should make sure first page is even. 

2. Mostly any new book will have only the questions with possibly the answer key alone. In that case answer keys can be moved till the end of the subject. 

3. Will consider this for future covers

4. I don't think it makes sense. Some people do topics based on number of questions asked from it previously. But in any exam this can vary a lot. Also, going alphabetical makes it easier to find a topic. Number of questions count is anyway given. 

1. Unfortunately no. I have ordered from Amazon. They are flipped, like I mentioned, for me at least. Check here.

2. Nice, thank you. 

3. Nice, thank you!

4. Sure. I just thought what was convenient from my point of view. 

Oh. Is it the same for all 3 volumes?
No. Vol1 and Vol3 are okay, only Vol2 is bad.
oh. I guess it happened by mistake at press.
Can't find the solutions in the pdf versions. Can you please tell me where can I find the solutions?
@Arjun Sir Why TIFR problems is not included in COA Subject?
It is there. But TIFR exam hardly has any COA questions as it is more Theoretical Computer Science though they have good questions on OS
Hi ,
I have some queries regarding this book.
-does this book contain theory concepts about subjects with QnA(with solutions) or just QnA(with solutions)?
-Also could you please suggest some book where i can clear my concepts first and then go into previous years questions and answers. I am doing self study.

Thanks in advance. any leads will be appreciated.

@Arjun sir,

The GO books are not available on Amazon right now. When will it be made available??

Is there any other website from which I can order the books?

Thank you

Actually books are sold out in Amazon. About 20 books are available in Trivandrum but there we have the strictest lockdown in India with not even parcel services operating and it's already 2 weeks which is now extended for 10 more days. Only when this is over -- no one knows when -- the 20 books can be made available.
Please let us know once the book is available.
I want to buy GO book hardcopy.But in amazon i can't able to get it.As it it out of stock.Can somebody tell from where GO book hardcopy is available?
I have added the PayU button for purchase. But books can be posted only by August 18.
August 18 will be the last date for the unused book. I mean entire stick will be over. But Amazon now allows used books to be sold on their site. So, anyone can sell their used copies like that.
