Hi Ganapathi! While a degree in Aeronautical Engineering is awesome, you don't need it to be a commercial pilot. If your intentions are to design aircraft, or be a test pilot, it is certainly a requirement.
For a career commercial pilot (airline pilot, etc.) you will need a solid, practical understanding of physical science, math, and earth science. The professional pilot 4 year degree programs usually require physics, algebra, and trigonometry. If you are interested in pursuing a flying career in India, check and see if the airlines have a cadet program. A cadet program will include all the training necessary to go from 0 flight time to airline pilot. The best part is the airline pays for the course. You will be obligated to work for them for some time, but it's a great opportunity to gain experience. If you are interested in a 4 year professional pilot program in the U.S., there are many good ones at both large and small universities.
Best of Luck!!

Hi Ganapathi,

Any Engineering course or Graduate degree is not mandatory or a pre-requiste to become a commercial Airline Pilot. You need to pass your 12th with science and maths.
Furthermore, before you can become a pilot in India you need :
1. Class-1 medicals - to check if you are medically fit to be a pilot
2. There are several written exams that you need to clear to get your commercial pilot licence. you can check further on the DGCA (Directorate General of Civil Aviation) website.
3. After passing these exams, you can look for a cadet program within India. (PS: I know Indigo Airline do have a Cadet program but not sure in the current Covid situation whats the procedure)

All the best for your Future. Hope you pursue a career in flying!
Happy Landings.
