@Arjun sir ,

I also bought GO 2020 hardcopy but I haven't get any mail of CMI / ISI question pfd.

ISI/CMI PDF is still not ready. You can get the current draft here

Sir how much more time needed
it'll take 3-4 days but for most purpose you can use the above draft as 90% it will remain the same. And volume 2 PDF is now updated - you can redownload.
Arjun sir, plz provide go book through FLIPKART.

Its showing currently unavailable. Plz update more quantities on flipkart. So we can buy from flipkart.

Not in my hands. Flipkart is showing my location as Bangalore and it has been 2 weeks since I had requested to change to Trivandrum where the books are present. The request keeps on transferring from one CC executive to another without any useful answer.
Ok sir.

Actually pricing on Flipkart is 200 less than Amazon. So I asked.

I hope flipkart will solve your issue.
Not really. It was excluding shipping I guess. Anyway no hope with flipkart - their CC replies once in a week.
@Arjun sir isi,cmi pdf ready ??

@Arjun Sir , Does aptitude section in volume 1 has questions from all branches or CS only? Anyone else know this?

@Gaganjot _Kaur

Vol1 contains all branches aptitude questions $(NA + VA)$ from $2010$ to $2019$

@ Sir, In your GO2020 Vol 3: Questions Only book, there is no marks distribution table for any subjects. Can you please add the Mark Distribution in Previous GATE Paper Table in GO2020 Vol - 3 book onlyIt will be really helpful.
2nd point, can you please add missing ISRO questions in your GO2020 soft copy, it will be very much beneficial.
Thanks in Advance...!!!

Mark distribution for Volume 3 is at the end of book.

ISRO questions are not useful for GATE. ISRO+NET is a different book but not yet done.
Sir, where can I get (ISI + CMI) pdf?
How much time will it take to be ready the (ISRO + NET) book?
are you going to release its 2021 version or will it be the same?
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.
