You have to complete post graduation in maths or its related subject with at least 55% marks to become eligible for Ph.D admission in India. Admission will be only possible if you study maths in your post graduation. As you have a B.Com degree which means you haven't studied maths and this will be against the eligibility criteria for admission.

First of all,you are NOT a post graduate.So you are ineligible for Ph.D as of now. The process is Graduation or Bachelors>>Post Graduation or Masters>>Ph.D.
Although some universities does provide combined Masters+Ph.D but not in Maths. Secondly you need to complete your post graduation in Maths so as to be eligible for Ph.D in maths related topic. Ph.D is not done on subject basis but on some topics or chapters of some specific subject in which you must have passed your Masters degree. If you can get into Masters in Maths course,then after completion of that you will be eligible for Ph.D in Mathematics.Moreover it would be mighty difficult for you to find Masters in Maths admission after Graduation in commerce because many universities does not allows Commerce candidates to go for Masters in Maths as Maths is either M.Sc Maths or M.A Maths.But it is not true for all Universities and some does allow admission.Look out for those universities and then proceed.
