In the present paper, we develop a new goodness fit test for gamma distribution using the fixed point characterization. U-Statistic theory is employed to derive the test statistic. We discuss how the right censored observations are incorporated in the test developed here. The asymptotic properties of the test statistic in both censored and uncensored cases are studied in detail. Extensive Monte Carlo simulation studies are carried out to validate the performance of the proposed tests. We also illustrate the test procedure using several real data sets.
