I am a PhD in Botany. I also have double masters ( botany and social work).
I am currently living in Germany.
Is it possible to do the self application for GC from Germany given the fact that I am an Indian citizen

USCIS does not restrict applicants to any particular location or nationality for the GC self-petition. So the answer to your question is yes. The key is to satisfy the USCIS criteria in either EB1A or EB2-NIW. You can read more about the self-petition process in the FAQ at the link. You can look at some example petitions to understand the application process.

Best of luck
