Is GRE mandatory for doing PhD in Abroad?

I want to know whether GRE is the basic criteria for getting admission for PhD? If yes, is there any university who doesnt takes GRE but either  IELTS or TOEFL for admissions?

GRE is not mandatory at all schools. American universities often ask for a standardized test for postgraduate studies but it is less common in other countries. GMAT is common for Business studies, GRE is a more general test used for many programs, and LSAT is required by Law Schools in the United States and Canada.

Check the admission requirements for the program that you want to take on the schools website and fill out an information request if you want help to apply.
