Good question. Hope you know that a psychiatrist is a doctor too dealing with mental health issues.
As a Psychiatrist, you could work mainly in hospitals in their psychiatric ward or the cgc (child guidance clinic). Other than that you could work in private clinics or polyclinics and set your own practice. Can be associated with NGO as well.
After few years of experience, you could work as a consultant and associate with different hospitals and clinics.
Though a psychiatrist works with all age group but best would be to focus either on children or adults group.
Please note few psychiatrist adminster clinical test, but majorly they hire counselors to do the testing and they just certify the results.
Thus as you see scope is immense. Its all upto the candidate how they plan their careers.
Wish you good luck....
Firstly hope you are clear about the difference between Psychologist and Psychiatrist? If yes, then its good. Both are related to the mental health. Psychologist is a consulting science and Psychiatry is a medical science. Both have tremendous scope.
If you belong to the Science stream and you have PCB in your 12th, you can go for Psychiatry courses. To become a Psychologist, you need not have Science background.
Since Psychiatry is a medical science field, Psychiatrists are required in hospitals (mental hospitals), Trauma Centres, Schools. You have your own private practice.
In order to post replies to the question: "scope for psychiatrists "
