GATE or GRE - Which One To Choose? And Why?

I get a lot of messages through PM service and email asking 'Which one is better : GRE or GATE?'
The dilemma continues eternally among many final year engineering students.

I saw this topic being discussed on different websites and even in the Career-Help section in newspapers here.

I have replied to many depending upon their choice of interest and all.

Since we have many talented engineers here, I want CEans to answer this question.

    I guess the main answer lies between the choice of studying in INDIA or abroad. GATE ppl generally choose it as they want to go to one of finest institutions in country i.e. IITs. GRE ppl want to study abroad for MS.
