I advice you to retake GMAT. These schools are very competitive and being an Indian Male, you will need 700+ on your GMAT.

I'm afraid so. 660 is sort of around the average for those schools and being Indian candidate, one has to score atleast 700 if they are targeting the top 30, unless they have stellar application and essays.

My operations experience is in my own family business and my work timings are very steep, i work from 9am to 10pm and finding the time to prepare and give GMAT again is difficult for me.
Any suggestions on how i can counter this below average score in my application.

I can completely sympathize with your situation. I myself work in an operations profile for a bank from 8:30am to 10pm and hard pressed in finding time to study. I guess the only thing one can do is make every second count. I try to get up early by 4:30-5am so that I can manage atleast 2 hours of study everyday. I'd also suggest reading flash cards while you are commuting or having meals etc. and completely utilize weekends as much as possible. It's still early May so you have around 3 months before the deadlines approach.

Make every second count.

Unfortunately, if you're targeting Northwestern your GMAT would put you in the bottom 20% (class of 2016). That does mean that 20% of the people they enrolled fell into that category, but if there isnt anything else outstanding about your application that's a definite weak point and one that you have the power to change.

My work week is very demanding and when it came to studying I took this approach.

Saturday/Sunday - 3 to 4 hours per day
Summarize after the weekend what I struggled with most from those areas.
Monday - Friday try to study approx. 1 hour per day as a review of what I studied over the weekend (and previous weeks) and master what I had difficulty with. I rarely introduced new materials during the week as my brain was pretty fried.

In total I think I studied between 100 - 120 hours. It made a huge difference.

As with the other advices, I suggest you strongly consider investing more time with the GMAT review.

Just my two cents, with regards to your work at the family business, you may consider start delegating more of your work or reducing your time there. This could be a good time to start transitioning for the time you will be away when you do your MBA.

Wish you all the best!

The gmat score doesn't do everything. People tends to focus to much on that since it is the only thing that can really be quantified and compared to other applicants.
Being said, with a 660 GMAT score, you must have a very strong application.
I advise you to work with a consultant. Here was mine and she was fantastic: Farrell Dyan

I have been admitted to Wharton.
