Given that you are applying from a common applicant pool (male, Indian, IT), ideally your GMAT would be higher, though yours is certainly respectable. I would classify the following schools as "long shots" not though achievable ones (if you execute flawlessly): Cornell, UCLA, ISB. The following schools are your competitive or doable schools: Rotman, Ivey, Kelley, USC. These schools are you optimistic or 'safety' schools: Queens, UIUC, NUS, Nanyang. You appear to be young, so if you get dinged this year, you can come back next year with a higher GMAT score or at least more professional and community leadership and improve your odds even more.
Given your goals, you could also consider these schools, which would be competitive for you: Emory, Babson, CMU.
