Game programming is better learnt from abroad. My brother just finished his course at DSK Supainfocom and even though his experience there was good the exposure and internship/job opportunities are better abroad. He is currently doing his six months internship at Disney India and getting paid 35k a month. But that is nowhere good enough if he had a big loan overhead considering the 2 year course cost us around 16.5L. He will be looking for jobs abroad as soon as his internship is over.

I was going to say that you should go with the CS degree route, but you're already in 3rd year of a diploma CS course? Not sure how different it is from BTech CS.

I was going to say that you would learn a lot more with a CS degree course (if you do it from a good institution) and will also have a good backup if the game programming thing doesn't play out well.
You could do game programming as a hobby during your CS course and see if your interest is still there after 4 years.

But not sure what your situation is with the CS thing... 3 yr diploma --> 4 yr degree --> course on game dev ? o_O
