Hi Shubham,
Yes, it might create issues at the time of preparation of the final merit list. But you can compensate it by giving an extraordinary interview and impressing the panelist. Try to give proper justification for the gap and the poor grades in under graduation. Prepare answers to the related questions well before the interview.
Good luck !
