If I had an M.Tech degree, would I get the same amount of knowledge and understanding of quantum mechanics which I would have got had I done a major in Quantum mechanics or other related branches?

Depends what books you read. With a bachelor's degree you likely won't be doing quantum field theory, but you'll be able to do schoredinger equation calculations, and that's enough to understand what you don't understand.

If you want to learn QFT, that's another three to four years of work.

Also QM is one of those things that the more you learn, the less you understand.

Quantum mechanics isn't a major anymore then Algebra is a major.

So what you mean to say is that having an M.Tech degree is the same as doing a masters in QM or QFT.
