Well, a cut-off of 400 opens opportunity for many aspirants and it's great that IITB kept a lenient cut-off. If your GATE score is above 400, then without any doubt you should start preparing for their written test/interview.
And IITB and IITD are amongst the best IITs in the country. I am sure that IITD will keep a lenient cut-off too (as per the preliminary info that I could see at IITD website, a minimum score of 300 has been prescribed for admission to Masters and PhD courses in IITD across the institute.
You will get call from IIT Hyderabad without any doubt. It's a newly established IIT but it would be having a world class campus (Japan being the infrastructure head for it). Faculty is good there. As of now, the campus is under construction.
Job prospects are many after a degree from IIT. Average package goes around 7-8 lpa (IITD and IITB). Biocon, Dr. Reddy, Novozymes, Wockhardt, TRDDC, Abott, Consultancy firms are key industries. Teaching is always up and open for IIT graduates/PG/PhDs. More importantly, you will have all doors open to pursue a good PhD from a university abroad (Germany/UK/US/Singapore).
In short, your career woes would decrease drastically!
Hope it helps
