You become a Certified Scrum Master after taking a course. Unless you fail the online assessment, the cost of the exam is included with your course. See the Scrum Alliance FAQ

Other Certs: SCEA Part 1, Part 2 & 3, Core Spring 3, TOGAF part 1 and part 2

if any body in India is looking for Certified Scrum Master in India, they can visit at Me and many of my friends / colleagues did CSM from them. Very good faculty , and really enjoyable interactive session during the class. Mostly all of us got clear in exam in one shot. Fees is reasonable too I believe.
You can just catch them by sending a mail from their registration page , executive will cal you and will explain everything .
