You are pursuing Engineering right now, and after engineering, you can always opt for MBA. That will lead you to more job opportunities. You can sit for banking exams and get a job in banks. Railway exams are also open.
But I think banking will be best for you. The banks hire people to look into the matters regarding agricultural loans, land debts, etc.
