Which you and your young ilk all over this world appear to miss, is, what weight do you carry?

Soon as you stop externalizing it, will be as soon as you get somewhere.

If you're unhappy with your course, or think you do do not want to take up a career in the direction you are being pointed, then change. Simple as that.

You mean, accreditation?

Since they are based in the University of Pune Science and Technology Park, I would check with the U of P, or the Scitech Park, or your state or federal government to find out: A) Who accredits such schools, and B) Is Data64 accredited.

As to the reputation of this certification in the industry, only IT security consumers and established trade groups can say. It may be too new a certification to carry much weight, or such certification may be in high demand. Customers in your part of the world are the most likely to have already formed an opinion as to the quality of the certification from any particular training provider offering courses there.

Finally, if it is a good course of study, and you learn what you need to embark on a career in the study and practice of some type of IT security, well, this is what you are really after, anyway. And you at least have a cert that says you completed a course of study.

These are three related, but different, things. They don't always come in the same package.

Note that there are other educational facilities which offer similar courses of study, both India and elsewhere.

In fact, download and play with this:
http://www.backtrack-linux.org/
for which courses are also offered.

The corporate sponsor of Backtrack does training :
http://www.offensive-security.com/

So, such a thing is not unusual, if you are asking. There seem to be several other training providers in Pune along with Data64.

You.

Sophisticated, but, an enabler, still.
