Hi deepikaverma7777

A gap year most of the time hampers your chance for admission at any program.

However, if you have a solid reason for the gap and can show some learning curve
at something that you had had done during that period it won't affect you as much
For example, if you helped with the family business and helped improve certain things
there, it would be considered positive overall.

Hope that helps!
