My answer is a too much late but for future reference, Most of Indian automotive industries is inclined more towards NX then CATIA. Even HAL uses NX as far as I know. But keep in mind that Software is nothing more than a tool and skills in one software can easily be transferred to other with little practice.

I guess No. You should wait and try until you get suitable profile in Catia or NX as these are the key software for Automotive Interior and exterior design.
If you start with Solid works, you may find it difficult to switch to your interested profile after 1 or 2 years.
