    The first should be either "I have a masters [degree] in psychology from a university in India"  or "I have done a masters (-study) at a university in India"

    The second one implies that you have done something so horrible (cheating on tests, plagiarising someone else's work) that your degree was revoked

    I did a masters in psychology at a university in India.   

    Definitely 'at a university', not 'in a university', nor 'from a university'.

    1. is sort of okay, but, it is very stilted.  "Done" is not a good word to use here.

    2. is not correct: the "had" makes the sentence past tense.

    "I have completed a Masters of Psychology from an Indian university" would be better.

    1. I have done a master[s] OF psychology from a university in India. -- No. No native English-speaker would say that

    2. I have had a master[s] OF psychology from a university in India. -- No.  

    Correct: I have a master of psychology  . . .

    Nope, "I have a masters of psychology from a university in India."
