I am afraid you have waited a bit too late to apply for this season, since round three is widely considered the most challenging in which to gain admission. The reason is that not only are there very few seats left after R2, but you are also at this point competing against everyone on the waitlist in addition to those applying in round 3. In short, you need a very robust profile to be competitive at this point, and with only 2.5 years of WE and a GMAT which although good, is not great, will probably not get you there. I would keep logging the work experience, perhaps taking on some challenges which demonstrate leadership. Not sure if you can begin to take on more responsibilities which would be more like what you want to do in management, but anything you can do would go a long way in demonstrating you are ready to make the transition. You could also retake the GMAT--looks like you are able to improve dramatically with subsequent sittings, so go for a 700 and your doors will open even wider. The Indian applicant pool is quite competitive as you know, so like it or not, you will need to really turn up the credentials as much as you can.
