I am a M.Tech fresher..I got an offer from 2 companies.One is a startup and another is a MNC..I have decided to go for the startup because I believe I can learn more there..Please do say me whether I will have problems later if I want to move to some other company..Does brand name really counts?

If you are in India then it counts manytimes.Outside it may not count.Working for big company means you know CMMi,processes etc.If you are into actual engineering type developent like embedded programming,kernel coding etc then name doesn't matter.Otherwise if they get your resume and somebody working in TCS,then he will be preferred.(Assuming both are technically well).

By joinig in big copanies mostly you will get training which gives you a chance to settle down in the company. More you will learn about processes and other standards. Once you got 3 to 4 years of exp you can switch to a company as your requirements. By joining small startup company there are chances that you directly put to the job and may miss trainings and other area where you need some introduction.

Good Luck

Since you are in India, the answer is MNC. Startups absolutely don't make sense in the Indian IT market. Finally, you will end up trying to wind your way into an MNC, so better sooner than later.

About 20 years ago,no one had heard of Infosys and even the founders had a lot of trouble convincing clients about the ability of an Indian company to execute high-tech projects.

Coming back to the original post,I would say look at the management of the company,consider their business plan, look at your role,if you think its something that can go from a concept to a full-fledged company it might just be worth it.

I would say whoever gives you a better learning experiance should be your choice.

Firstly, just check out wht the technical expertise you can gain from the start up. Becoz, I know my friend who has done Phd joined in a start up and hez doing excellently well. It is basically in VLSI design. If you can get a better start with start up, if the technology wise it sounds good.
Else prefer MNC for starting your career.. it makes your way smoother down the lane when you opt for a change from the current one
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
