Well, the bad news is that your application credentials on paper will appear very "average" to most top programs, since the typical Indian applicant has an IT background. The fact that your GMAT is also below average for many schools leaves you in the position of having to be a bit more strategic in your approach, which is no big deal. I would start by taking a closer look at schools which already have a history of admitting a lot of international applicants. A good list can be found here:
http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandr ... l_students

Once you find a few that interest you and seem like a good fit for your targeted post-MBA career in MGT and finance, you can further narrow the pool by finding schools which are more lenient statistically on the GMAT. Another option may be for you to consider part time programs, which do not have to report their admission stats to the rankings boards and therefore have more lenient admissions requirements on things like GMAT scores. Hope this helps.

Forgot to mention that another strategy would be to use the same list and find some schools with average GMAT scores in your range which have a lower percentage of international students. From there, you will need to do some detective work to ascertain which of those schools might be trying to boost their international student percentage to be more "global" in their classroom experience. THis approach is a little tougher, since it sometimes takes a bit of inside information to know which schools are trying to grow in this area. A quick call to the admissions office, or a short interview with a current student or member of the school's academic community may provide this insight. In the end, however, you shouldn't let your GMAT score alone be a deterrant. Remember that schools post their average score, which means that there are always "outliers" in both directions. The students who find themselves with an offer of admission despite their low GMAT score are usually those who can write a compelling and engaging application essay which passionately convinces the committee that you have something to offer beyond the norm and also have a good chance of achieving whatever your clearly defined career vision is after graduation.
