Astronomy is a good subject which involves the study of various subjects such as Chemistry,Geology,Mathematics and Physics,Biology and paleontology and more.I recommend you to get command over the subjects like Physics and Mathematics.
The skills of a astronomers need good Scientific writing,Public speaking and computer skills and more.

The eligibility criteria for a JEST(Joint Entrance Screening Test) is given you as below.There are various streams in Ph.D Programme,they are Physics,Integrated M.Sc/M.Tech-Ph.D programme,Integrated Ph.D Programme at IISER,Theoretical computer science/Neuroscience,and more.

The minimum age eligible for the Joint Entrance screening test is 21 years and the maximum age can be allowed up to 30 years.Of course there will be an age relaxation for the reserved candidates.The examination paper would be very tough to answer.So you will need to give your highest effort to qualify the exam.

Bachelor and Masters degrees such as M.Sc in Physics,M.E/M.Tech,M.Sc Mathematics,B.Tech in Physics/applied physics,Post B.Sc,M.C.A in Computer science and related disciplines,B.Sc (Physics),M.Sc Aplied physics,Post B.Sc Hons,B.Sc Physics and Mathematics are the basic qualification for the Joint Entrance screening test.

In the Astronomy field,it is required to get some working experience.For that you need to work as a Research Fellow.So that you would expect very much good career in your field.The salary range basically depends on the Seniority and working experience.It may range from Rs.64,000 to Rs.96,000 per month.
