(2) Your category
(3) Number of seats notified by a certain PSU for a particular branch of engineering in a certain year (i.e., 2017)
(4) Number of total seats notified by all PSUs for a particular branch of engineering in a certain year (i.e., 2017)
(5) Difficulty level of GATE paper in a certain year of your branch of engineering (i.e., 2017)

Conclusions provided above are for General Categories. OBC candidates can multiply each of the ranks by 2 and SC/ST candidates can multiply each of the ranks by 5 to get a realistic view. PSUs interview shortlist criterion is 1:6 to 1:10 depending on the PSU and number of vacancy notified for a particular year. So if there are 50 vacancies total for a particular year & for a particular branch of engineering then they will atleast call 300 candidates for GD & PI.

* These are general statistics, most appropriate for the popular departments like Electronics, Computer Science, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering in their most popular and common courses. For more details you may check concern companies website.
