    You have to complete your graduation in science stream with Physics as one of the subjects.

    After this you apply for admission in M Sc in Astrophysics. This is available in many colleges and universities specially near national observatories.

    After Astrophysics post graduate degree there are research opportunities as well job opportunities in big national institutes (example - TIFR in Mumbai).

    Astronomy is an interesting subject and you can start night sky observation and reading general articles on stars, galaxies and universe and prepare yourself for the career you wanted to opt.

    Knowledge is power.
