Who should take RH courses, hmmm good question. Ambitious superusers/admins-to-be/current admins. That work with Linux (Red Hat or its clones, but it doesn't have to be RH) or see themselves working with Linux in the near future. I personally don't know if getting an RH cert bumps up the salary, but it surely bumps up your cred around your fellow Linux users.
I don't know where you live and who is administering courses and RH exams in your country where you live, but here in the US the cost of the exam is included in the total cost of the course. Typically, majority of course takers pass the exam (this is RHCSA and RHCE, don't know about other, higher courses), but courses themselves are pricey if you are paying out of your own pocket.
In my view, it is more about marketability of your skills rather than a part of your masters in computers.

I recommend you read classified ads and job postings for your region, to see if there are good jobs requiring RHCSA, so you can decide if it is a good investment.

Hi Prajakta, Welcome to LQ.

You are continuing your masters and you dont have job experience yet. So in future if you are planning to make your career using linux(A superuser/any admin(linux/unix/db/network/)/development/tetsing/research/,etc..), you need to have the skillset ready for it. Taking the training and/OR exam will give you a deep understanding and make your skill competitive in job market. Because you know lots of companies hire freshers and give them training first for 6-12 months. So with those particular skillsets you will stand ahead them.

Its not like that with certification guarantee a job, but you will be given preference if a linux related job is there.

But you need to practice dedicatedly for it.
