You can apply for Ph.D in Computer Science, if you have any one of the following qualification.

1. M.Tech. in Computer Science or a related discipline (Computer Technology, Computer Engineering, Information Technology, Electronics and Communication etc).


2. B.E./B.Tech/M.Sc. in Computer Science or related discipline or MCA with a valid GATE score in CS/IT/ECE


3. M.Sc in Maths/Physics/Statistics with a valid GATE score in their subject

The above eligibility criteria is for IITs. The GATE score is utilized by most top colleges like IIT for admission and if you want admission in top colleges, then qualify GATE.

Some universities which are not so popular have seats for non GATE qualified candidates also. You can easily get admission without GATE also because Ph.D is not opted by many students.

Yes, you can do Phd after MscIT as you will be awarded by Doctaret degree and get better opportunity in terms of career.


Hi friend, I would suggest you to apply for MD course first and then do Phd in biophysics. Although, there are some institutions which offer direct admission to PhD after MBBS.
Here's the list of institutions:
National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences
Delhi university
