In any case, for getting a good job in Information Technology, you must keep in mind that most of the companies prefer the following qualifications not necessarily in order of preference:
B.E/B.Tech/M.E/M.Tech in Computer/Electronics Engineering
Any Engineering degree
MCA/ MIT/ PGDIT/ equivalent course
M. Sc. in Computer Science/Physics/Mathematics/Statistics/Electronics/related
BCA/B. Sc. in Computer Science/Physics/Mathematics/Statistics/Electronics with a good diploma in Computer
Very few IT companies offer jobs to a graduate with a diploma in computer. However, you can get a job in a small company if you have a diploma in computer. As you are a B. Com graduate, the best course for you would be an MCA/ DOEACC 'B' level course which is equivalent to MCA.
Getting an educational loan is also easier for you if you are enrolled in a good degree course. For computer diploma courses, you may not get a loan. Almost all nationalised and private banks offer educational loan. For loans below Rs 25000, you don't need any collateral. But for loans about Rs 25000, you will need to produce collaterals like LIC policy, bonds, fixed deposits, Indira Vikash Patra, etc. You can contact the local branch of any bank for more details.
