Oh yes that is abosutely possible. You can do B.Tech and Mtech in totally different streams. If you are looking to do Mtech without appearing in gate then you have the choose the university appropriately. Some universities consider students for M.tech admission without a GATE score.
Is distant Btech valid? If yes can you help me out with the universities in mumbai? Can i have future opportunities for GATE, CAT with the distance Btech degree?
A distance B.Tech degree is not valid for any job/internship/higher exams. B.Tech involves not just theory lessons, but a lot of practical sessions. Due to this reason, a distance B.Tech degree is not accepted, unlike other liberal arts or commerce degrees.
Please note some universities have made offers of distance B.Tech in the past, do not fall for these claims, your degree won't be accepted.
Hope this helps!
