It is very nice to hear on your aspiration to become a researcher in mathematics. May I know what is your current academic standing to advice you better on this query? However I shall give you in depth advice on becoming a researcher in Mathematics. Only a candidate with the PhD degree is deemed to be known as a researcher. So I shall explain here on the process on studying the PhD in maths and becoming a researcher then.
In India, to study a PhD degree in Maths it is strictly required for every candidate to undergo the 10+2+3+2 route.
10: You get 10 points when you complete your 10th class successfully. Ensure you have a first class pass in 10th with Maths subject studied as one of the main subjects.

+2: You get +2 points on completing 12th standard.Please note that as you desire for a PhD in Maths, it is essential for you to study Maths as one of the subjects in your 12th class. Some students might not take maths as their option in their 11th and 12th class and such students cannot study any degree in maths at college level. You have not mentioned about your 12th class subjects in your inquiry, so please ensure you have definitely studied maths at 12th.

+3: You get +3 points when you study a basic undergraduate three year course in maths. So it is very essential for you to study the three year course BSc Maths.

+2: You get +2 points on completing your two year masters degree. So it is mandatory to study the two year MSc Maths degree.

So with this you get to follow the 10+2+3+2 route right? After meeting this criteria, now comes the eligibility tests for the PhD admission. The main eligibility test criteria that you are required to get is the NET exam. NET is the national eligibility test that every student aiming for the PhD should appear and qualify it. NET exam is conducted two times a year and it is during the months of June and December. Sometimes it could also be end June or early July. You should follow up with NET exam advertisements on MHRD website to send your application and payment well in time.

So along with your NET, you are eligible to send the PhD Maths application across any college or university in India. Therefore, 10+2+3+2+NET = PhD.

Job prospects after PhD: After your PhD you can start working as a researcher in maths at any research institute, college/ university or national research laboratories. I hope this helps. All the best.

Hello There,
Though Appumira mam has given you the perfect answer especially the route to P.Hd in Maths.

I just wish to elaborate more on the options you have further to your qualification

As a Mathematician you would be exposed to Maths submodalities like Algebra, Geometry, Trignometry, calculus, Arithmetic and Statistics

These days Maths major students specialise with statistics and find jobs into insurance, banking or Finance sector, budgeting sector, Business development etc.
Other than this, you could carry on your research with any option right from Pure Math, Statistics, Computer sciences etc, and also getting int teaching / Professor

Hope this helps.
Wish you good luck....
