For PhD, in any stream, you just have to have a master's degree.

It means, all you need is to be a post graduate to take admission for PhD.

With the qualification you have mentioned, you are completely eligible.

Latter is a fellowship grant to students to encourage them to pursue Advanced studies and Research leading ultimately to M.Phil or PhD.
