Yes, ethical hacking is not only a reliable but demanding career option in India.
Not only ethical hacking, but I also want to specify the whole as cyber security.
There are a lot of career options available in cyber security such as penetration tester (ethical hacker), SOC analyst, security analyst, incident responder, forensic expert, system administrator, and so on
As ethical hacking is mentioned in the question so, I will only discuss penetration tester.
For starting into a career in cyber security as a penetration tester, you need to gain at least one certification (especially for fresher) such as,
Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) by EC CouncilOffensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP) by Offensive SecurityeLearnSecurity Junior Penetration Tester (EPT) by eLearnSecurity
Note: I have only listed few beginner-level certifications for landing into cyber security as a career. There are also good certifications available on the market.
