3lok-

In truth you have a fine candidacy, but as outlined above, nothing outstanding that jumps out at me.
1- I do not see leadership (except one year) or innovation. Start brainstorming where you have proved both of these.
2- I do not know the gpa equivalent of a 7.7/10, but in US terms a 3.5 would be adequate, higher is much much better. Let me know how this would calculate.
3- You are on the shorter side of work experience years. It can not hurt to apply for 2014-12015, but you might consider waiting one more year and using that time to gain another year of work experience AND getting more community service on your resume. You could use that year to do something extracurricular that is spectacular.
4- What you wrote above it brief, so perhaps think on this and write back to the forum with the answer to Why You? Why 3Lok? What makes you unique? What differentiates you from your competition? Why does the AdCom want to give you one of the previous spots, what will you add to the classroom that another applicant will not? Work on this piece first and let's build from there.

Working on the above components will give you even more great MBA options.

Best of Luck-
