Glad to hear that you are focused on doing a PhD in future. PhD is the highest degree given in the academics and only those set of dedicated and brilliant minds could go to that stage to get the PhD. It is a doctoral and in fact the last level of studying so there are some set of rules for you to do for you to go to that PhD studying stage.

I see you are either a school goer or must have completed your schooling now. To go on to studying a PhD in Mathematics, there are a set of rules and regulations that you need to follow and here I describe it one after one for you.

1. Complete Higher secondary school level with maths:
You should study Maths as a compulsory subject in your 10th and 12th class. It is also required for you to achieve a minimum of first class mark in both 10th and 12th level maths though a very high score like the 90% and above is often deemed necessary.

2. BSc Maths:
After your schooling, you should study a bachelors degree in maths. So you need to enroll for a BSc Mathematics degree and completing this BSc with a minimum of 65% is essential, though a 70% and above is seen as an essential winning criteria for a PhD degree.

3. MSc Maths:
Completing your BSc Maths, you should go on to study the MSc Maths, two year degree again. Please note that in India, it is essential for students to compulsorily go through 10+2+3+2 route for students to enroll in PhD Maths.It means passing 10th (10), passing 12th class (12), passing BSc (+3), passing MSc (+2) is mandatory. Please make sure you get a minimum of 65% again in your MSc if you are from an unreserved category like the OC, BC and the MBC. For students from the reserved category like the SC and ST you should get a minimum of 55% in your MSc maths degree.

4. Eligibility tests:
After completing your MSc Maths, you should sit for the eligibility tests to get ad admission for the PhD. The most common test that almost every college and university in India uses is the NET exam known as National Eligibility Test. This exam takes place twice a year and its conducetd in July and December. You should propose to sit at either one of this exam intake and qualify it. After you successfully pass the NET exam, you are qualified with NET. And this keeps you eligible to apply for a PhD in Maths anywhere in India.

So ideally the rule is 10+2+BSc+MSc+NET = PhD

Good luck
