I'm sorry to tell you Geeta that it is not easy to get here from the UK with the degree you have studied. The easiest qualification and industry experience to come here is HSMP for IT staff. Even doctors are having problems coming here. I have worked in HR for many years and you would not believe how many people from India have approached me to come here through my relatives or family friends. It just isn't easy at all. You have nothing to offer the UK which it doesn't already have - I don't mean that in a rude way but just that people with IT skills and good qualifications are still being sought to come here but no other industry really - aside from maybe the medical profession (and even that is becoming harder). When you say you've studied in a recognised university it doesn't mean anything to recruiters in the UK. They would just look at your words and think "But if a university isn't recognised does she mean that the others are fake universities?"... Improve your skills and try to find a good job in India, gone are the days when it was easy to come here with degrees and big hopes. The only way you can get in with your current qualifications (and even if you didn't have them) is to marry a British national, if that's something you would consider...
