I have completed bachelor's IT degree (computer engineering) in India and having 4 years of relevant experience as software engineer.
I am currently studying in australia (Master of IT). I am aiming to do ACS skill assessment under Software engineer. Is it compulsory to do professional year
to assess my Master of IT degree (which i am doing in australia) or not?? I am pretty sure that if i am assessing my bachelor's degree
than i dont think so i require to do PY becuase i have relevent experience. But, I would like to claim 5 points for my australian study and
5 points for study in regional area (adelaide).

No, but doing that may give you some additional benefits in assessment/point claim.

That has no relation with PY.

You can claim points of australian study and regional study without doing any assessment, Your course completion letter and transcript is enough for that. It is not linked with skills assessment. You can get your skill assessment on the basis of overseas experience however PY will give you 5 extra points.
