I found this IBM certification that I will be pursuing over the next few months.
IBM Certified Specialist for Rational Object Oriented Analysis and Design

It doesn't just focus on how well you can identify all the parts of a class diagram, more importantly it focuses on proper object oriented design. In my opinion UML is supposed to be a tool used to communicate an idea between programmers, architects, etc. and it is not crucial to know all the proper ways to use the diagrams.

OCUP is 200$ , which means Rs 10,500 . Think twice before you take any certification, whether it is worth and will it have any advantage in terms of a better pay, job, promotion etc!!

as fas as I know there is only a german language book on preparation for the OCUP Fundamental exam. But I guess reading the UML specs will be quite enough, as the scope of the exam is defined quite well.
You can find some example certification questions at this link - the pages are german, but the questions are english.
