Yes, you are eligible to be considered in PSU after having cleared GATE followed by clearance of AMIE examination through Graduate Engineer Trainee scheme. However, you have to satisfy the other parameters as well such as matching your age as per the requirement of Employers, minimum percentage of marks not below than 65 percent in both the sections A and B. In addition to these, you have to clear the written test organised by the Management and subsequent clearance of the oral - interview.
There are numerous organisations such as ONGC, IOCL, BCCL, NTPC etc, where special incentives are awarded to the aspirants having acquired high percentile in the GATE examination and they are given two additional increments in their pay- slabs. So, it would be a boon for an aspirant to have cleared the GATE test.
Lastly, with regard to your query that AMIE is not being regarded equivalent to Engineering - degree is false notion. For all recruitment - purposes, this degree is at par with graduate Engineering - degree since AMIE is approved by ministry of HRD and so wipe out your prevailing doubt. Prepare your written - test with confidence so that you are selected in a PSU followed by clearance of your oral - interview.

Is this a good answer ?

AMIE is a valid degree and it is equivalent to Bachelor degree in Engineering. However your question is very specific that whether you are eligible for PSU job via GATE or not. You are eligible for GATE but many PSUs like BHEL invites graduate engineers with 4 years regular course for its Engineer Trainee post. Then even if you have qualified GATE exam, you will not be called for interview by BHEL. Same is the case of ONGC and IOCL. Few companies consider AMIE as requisite qualification like NTPC, BEL, HAL etc. Therefore, you have to see the advertisement and read the eligibility criteria very carefully.

I am attaching two of the advertisement by ONGC and IOCL. In case of ONGC, it is clearly mentioned in 'Note e' that AMIE is not the requisite qualification. In case of IOCL, it is written in para '4.1.1' that only 4 years regular course is eligible.
