You need to check the Advocates Act to confirm whether you qualify to become an Advocate. I think one of the requirments is that you need to be a citizen of India.

Hi ive been meaning to ask if one can do LLM in India directly after doing MA ( From St. Andrews Scotland) being an Indian Citizen? Or does one have to necessarily do LLB to pursue LLM?

If your MA is in Law, you don't require an LLB. The only prerequisite for LLM in India is you must hold a first professional degree in law like JD or BA (Law) or LLB. I think your an Indian, so you'd have to write the entrance test named CLAT if you'd like to get into the best law schools of India like NLSIU and NALSAR. But, if you are an NRI, I'm guessing that you'd be exempted from CLAT. They obvious will look into your GPA in the first degree in Law.

Once again, this is guesswork.

Most conventional universities like Delhi University, Bombay University prescribe the following as criteria for their LLM programs

"a three-year/five-year LL.B. Degree from any Indian or Foreign University recognized as equivalent by the University of Delhi with at least 50% marks or an equivalent grade point in the aggregate. "

For CLAT universities it is

"A candidate should have obtained an LL.B./a five year integrated LL.B./any other equivalent degree in Law from a recognized University with not less than 55% marks in aggregate (50% in case of SC/ST candidates), as prescribed by the respective Statutes of the participating Universities."

Without an idea of what type of degree the MA is it is hard to know whether it will suffice for entry to LLM in india. Please check whether the MA you speak of entitles you to qualify as a lawyer in Scotland. If not, you may not be able to get admitted to an LLM program in India
