Akshay,
Good to hear from you!
So on the positive side, you have a very very nice GMAT score. And very good grades from a recognized institution.

On the negative side, you have quite little experience (2.5 working years) for an Indian applicant, with a change in the middle that might work in your favor, but for the AdCom you might have been working at your job for a bit little.

The question I would have is what do you do and what have you done?
It's definitely more impressive to have a job at the Ministry of Foreign affairs than coding, but it also depends what you have done and what you are doing!

Also, it will depend on other things such as volunteer work EC activities and so on.

Finally, something that will influence your application would be your goals: what are they?

Feel free to answer these questions and I will be happy to get back to you,
