I am a B.Sc Computer Science Graduate from Pune University(India) 2013 passout. I planned for the OCPJP SE 6 exam and after putting in efforts gave the exam and Scored 100%, also i have knowlege of JSP ,servlets and Struts Framework at basic level as i got training for it through SEED. Now im planning to take up fresher level jobs in Java, as this forum is full of Pro's, any guidance on further career steps would be helpful. Some questions i would like to ask.

1) Since i have below average grades( and a gap) in my graduation will it be difficult to be placed in any company, and if so would my OCPJP would come to rescue?
2) From what ive heard, it is best to work in small scale industry to gain knowledge & experience.. is this true?...(if any indians here could you guide me and how to find these jobs?)
3) Should i pursue the next level i.e the OCWCD exam....again of what i heard this exam should be taken only by working professionals?
4) Is there scope for Java at fresher level in Pune?

Any guidance will be a lot helpful, aslo suggestions!

Congrats on the exam. You don't have to put your college average on the resume. People will infer it isn't high from that, but it isn't so you aren't hiding anything.

I agree that taking the OCWCD isn't likely to help. Actually learning about servlets and building a test website could though. It's showing that experience of actually doing something that is an advantage.
