can one do MCom before finishing BCom?
To be eligible to undertake a Masters Degree Program, you need to complete a bachelors degree.
U are ineligible with your current qualifications for an LLM.

Can I apply for Phd in Microbiology if I passed from humanities/Arts background in college?
Why do people ask stupid question?
Law is a post graduate degree,you can perhaps apply for a Bachelor's degree in Law before thinking of doing an LL.M., however there's is no dearth of diploma programs in tax.

It's not an entirely stupid question. There are many LLM programs that accept students without law degrees, especially in the UK. The question is whether there is one available in tax law.
And for the record, law is not necessarily a post graduate degree in the first place, either.

Yes, there are programs in UK and US which may allow some people to get an LL.M. meeting some minimum qualifications despite not having an LL.B.
The question was in India's context, law is still a post graduate degree, the dude asking the question is in his last year of college and eligible for an LL.B. once he graduates.
The other is an integrated program spanning 5 years which combines graduate studies and law and yes in that context it's not necessarily a post graduate degree.
However in the US, law is not an undergraduate degree.
