Hello Raman, 

Cardiology is a part of the medical profession.

To pursue cardiology, you first need to clear 12th under Science PCB stream.

After that appear for medical entrance exam like AIMS, etc.  Then based on your score at both entrance and 12th, you would be allocated a seat in a medical college. Duration of the course is 5.5 years, whereby 6months are dedicated to internship specifically rural zone. At the end you are awarded MBBS degree, which makes you a general practicioner.

But as you have shown an interest in Cardiology, it is a specialization available at the post graduate level. Here again you have to appear for an entrance exam and then you would be eligible for the 4.5 yearscourse, whereby you could choose either MD, where you would check patients with heart issues and suggest medicines or MS, where you become a surgeon.

Wish you good luck...
