I need help. I don't know what i did wrong because i have configured the dhcp pool, subinterfaces and dhcp relay agent. Gateway pc uses static ip address while Branch pc acquired their ip address through dhcp server which is the Gateway router. The only problem now is the pc on the Branch side is not getting the ip address.

    You are using duplicate addressing on each side. That will not work unless you jump through some hoops. The VLANs on one side are not the VLANS on the other side despite the same VLAN numbers, because the are separate by layer-3 (router). You cannot use duplicate addressing. Change the addressing on one side.

Thought it might be beneficial to others to expand @Ron Maupin's comment to an actual answer.

What happens with the stated configuration is as follows:

  1. A guest connects to VLAN 30 in Branch network and broadcasts a DHCP Discover packet
  2. Branch switch floods the Disc packet
  3. Brand router receives it, and as instructed by the IP Helper config forwards the packet to Gateway router
  4. Gateway acting as DHCP server will respond with DHCP Offer
  5. Because the Gateway server sees network 172.16.1.0/24 as locally connected on g0/0/0.30, it will not forward the packet through s0/1/0, but through g0/0/0.30
  6. Devices in the main office VLAN 30 will receive the DHCP Offer, but since they didn't request it they will drop the packet

As Ron says, changing the IP addressing on one side is the solution. Using the current devices and IP ranges it means splitting the networks.

How to go on from there depends. If all devices in the main office use static IP addressing, the existing DCHP pools and reservations can just be changed to provide IPs in range x.x.x.128/25. All addresses in x.x.x.0/25 are then available in the main office, and devices in the branch office will receive IPs starting (for example) from x.x.x.130/25.

If, on the other hand, also main office requires DHCP services, it's necessary to change the existing pools to ranges x.x.x.0/25, and create new pools in ranges x.x.x.128/25 for the branch use.

EDIT

Oops! Routing! OSPF needs to be reconfigured to reflect the new network configuration.
