M.Tech from IIT Bombay [Mechanical Engineering] GPA 8.5
B.Tech from a Government college in UP - 72 %.

GMAT - Planning to appear for GMAT in coming weeks.
Have score 680 (Q49, V33) in Dec 2012, this score has expired.

Also, I will appreciate if you can suggest a GMAT range that will make my score competent enough for this schools.
I've found it really difficult to improve my Verbal score but I am trying really hard.

Your profile looks has a technical bend and doesn't seem to be suited for a B school application with the data given below. The WHY MBA also needs polishing up. On the brighter side, you have the requisite experience and international exposure which will be beneficial in the overall process. As iterated multiple times in this forum, GMAT score is only 1 of the many requirements, IIM ABCL give out interview call to overall holistic profiles. GMAT ranges from 650-750 usually.

How true is this, Are people with extensive tech backgrounds considered 'unattractive' to B schools?

Sounds disappointing :hurt: , does that means that such people need a 'not so tech-heavy' role to increase their scope for B schools?

The whole point is that you are applying for a "B school" and not a "Tech School". Unless you show some business acumen and an inclination towards leadership why would a B school take you in ?

On the other hand, I am not discouraging or discounting on your capabilities in any way. However, the way you have presented your profile, it will stand little chance of being selected. You should look towards highlighting your achievements in a way that exemplifies more non technical aspects. Simply deciding to "do away with tech roles" is a statement to throw your chances away.

Your profile looks great and the international work-ex will only work in your favor. The average GMAT in all the IIM's is around 700. But a 680 won't make or break your case. Give it a shot next year and you have a pretty good chance of making it. All the best.
