My apologies - I don't know how it works in India. But in the US, employers don't hire on the basis of certification and degrees alone.

All of the certifications you describe above are designed for people who already have experience administering those technologies. Said differently, certification is designed not to show employers what you want to be doing, but as validation of real-world experience you already have. So I would recommend that you pursue certifications for what you already have experience doing (not training or book learning, but real-world experience).

Then start from CompTIA's Security+ certification. This will give you a fairly good idea about what is involved in IT Security.

Pick the certification/IT field which interests you the most. If you don't want to get up in the morning because you hate what you do at work, then it wouldn't matter which cert you do. Hope you get my point.

Good luck

It really does not matter how many certs. What matters is: do you know the material well?
