You may continue with your job. After 2 years just apply for a PhD at NUS. If one applies using GATE/GRE qualification at NUS/Germany, he/she doesn't have to pay any fee. Average scholarship received is not less than INR 1 lakh per month.
Avoid doing M.Tech from a regional college, especially when you have GATE qualification with you. If you want to go for M.Tech, you should pursue from an IIT. If you want to go for PhD in future, then better by-pass M.Tech and directly enroll for a PhD after your job experience (again, pursue it either from an IIT or NUS/Germany). Meanwhile ensure that you go for some conferences, present some posters, or get one or two research/review papers.
Teaching is not the only option after PhD. You can get some administrative jobs in research firms, can become a scientist in CSIR labs/institutes (only if you pursue PhD from an institute of repute). Teaching being the safest route is finally taken up by most people. Jobs are there for PhD people, but they are often not in plenty (considering the large pool of PhDs graduating these days. Competition is stiff in job sector for PhDs, but deserving ones always get their share!).
Hope it helps

Hello Mr Sunil
I just came to know from Gate office that the total no of candidates in BT for this year is 8923. This kind of puts me in a 'touch and go' situation - My Percentile on this basis (my rank 452) is 94.93. This is surprising to me given the fact that the cut-off is almost the same as of 2014 (students appeared in 2014 10714). Based on your experience, could you tell me if this changes the admission scenario for me or I can still expect calls from IITs like M, KNP, KGP, G, H & Delhi.
Also, what are your thoughts are ME Biotech offered by BITS ?

Thank you so much sunil bhaiya...
I know that u have very good experiences regarding the admissions specially in IITs, I have read all your articles and it really motivated me.
So can you please give me some interview tips and questions as this will be my first time?
And I also lack a bit of confidence as my rank is not that good to get into an IIt
