      Hi M.Ramesh, Kindly follow these steps to enter in to recovery mode 1. power off your tab 2. press the three buttons (power + volume up + volume down.) at same time. 3. Release the power button when you see the Android logo and keep pressing the two buttons till you see the gear. 4. Release the volume up without releasing the volume down. Wait till you see a yellow bar under the gear then you can release it. Check out this video :
