Hi vivekagarw2010,

It all depends on how well seperated your attempts were. If they were very close(1-2 months) then there should be no disadvantage. The universities will pick the best of the two.
However, if the exam dates were far apart, and 650 is the recent one, then there might be a dis-advantage in the interviews. Interviewers tend to look at more recent scores.

This was told to me by my gmat counsellor.

Wish you good luck !
