Below are the details of my profile. Can you please help me to decide, which colleges should I apply. I am thinking of applying to both Masters in Management( Europe ) and MBA courses ( North America and Asia ).

Class X - 86% ( with merit certificate in social science, which is given to top 0.01% students )
Class XII - 87% ( with merit certificate in economics, which is given to top 0.01% students )
Graduation - 69% ( In second year came first in a class of 70 )
Post Graduation - MA in economics ( Distance Learning. Did this course while working. )
GMAT - Scoring 680-700 in practice test. Targeting 720+

Work Ex - 23 months in Service Industry. Though was part of the subsidiary of one of the biggest banks, but since I was working in back office my profile was not good. Left job after 23 months as was not happy with my profile and currently working part time in my cousins business.

Extra Curricular - Not much. Took part in sports and debates in schools, but don't have any certificates. Have been involved with an NGO twice ( don't have certificate of this either).

Let me know if you need any other information. Thanks.

Your WE will be a tough sell for MBA programs, although your academics and GMAT are good. Most b-schools are going to want to see an intentional, progressively responsible career track with an average of at least 3 years. Sounds like you had a pretty underwhelming experience at the bank which would not likely translate into an impressive story plus working part time on the most recent side will be viewed as going in the wrong direction. Since you did not list your post MBA goals, I will assume you have not put too much thought into them, which will be a big red flag for MBA programs. In fact, being able to articulate a clear and compelling vision for your future and how what you have done in your past has laid the right foundation for that future is one of the most critical parts of a winning application.
What is it that you want to do? If you don't have all these answers, perhaps the MIM is a better choice. They will still want to hear your plans, but won't be nearly as critical of your work history nor how many years you have been working professionally. They will be more concerned with your academic record and why you want to pursue the MS degree.
