I gave my first Gmat exam in september and scored 600 [ Q48 and V28].

I decided to retake and took the exam again on 28th Dec and Scored 670 [ Q44 and V38].

Country : India

Graduation : Mechanical Engineering with 3.5 cgpa [ Converted, Actual: 70%]

Work Experience : 2.5 years in Honda 2 wheelers India in Quality Control taking care of testing, market claims, Government regulations [ Mostly all technical areas]

Work Responsibility : Testing of new models, Analysis of market claims, Analysis of market claim data identifying trends and forecasting for future, study and implementation of various new regulations being implemented.

Extra curricular :
Regular member of school and college football and cricket teams, won a couple of quizzes, member of team that won national design competition for designing a prototype of F1 car during college
Participated in annual Formula SAE competition in Fontana,California,USA with a prototype of F1 car and represented 1 of the only 2 indian teams present.Finished in top 50 from 100 participating teams.
Teaching village underprivileged children during free time in graduation

Goal : Basically a shift from technical to management work.To work as a top leader in a company.

1. Which programs and schools suit my profile?
2. Is it too late to apply since most schools are done with R2 and R3 applications?[ Really worried about this]
3. Is there any possibility that i can get scholarship at any of the schools?

Your help is much appreciated.

Congratulations on the huge increase in GMAT score.

You are probably too late for most R2 deadlines, but you have time for R3 (and for some schools R4).

If you are mainly interested in US programs, I suggest exploring schools where the 670 is at or slightly above average, to factor in the “over-represented Indian in IT” reality. So schools on the level of University of Georgia’s Terry, Boston College’s Carroll School, or SMU’s Cox would be examples of on-pars, and an example of reasonable reaches would be Notre Dame’s Mendoza. Canadian programs tend to be less GMAT-obsessed, and top programs there such as Rotman and Schulich would be good to consider as well.

I don't know the details of the scholarship opportunities, but usually, when you are admitted to a program that is somewhat less competitive for your profile (i.e., that is a safety or on-par for you and you are their reach), you have better chances of scholarships.
