Hi Vishesh. 
Your profile is not that bad actually. 
If you manage to score well in your graduation (70-75+), your chances of getting into at least MDI, FMS, IIFT etc. are very high. For IIMs, your performance in CAT will be crucial. 
Try to score 99.8+ to aim for old IIMs. 99+ should guarantee calls from new IIMs. If nothing materializes, don’t worry and go for some other top ranked institute like SIBM Pune, IMT Ghaziabad, NMIMS Mumbai, JBIMS etc. 

Do not feel demotivated already. Make the next 5 months count. I am sure you can manage a good percentile in all exams you give. All the very best!

Your profile is not bad. It’s just, that you don’t have enough confidence in yourself. Buck up your confidence, and prepare for CAT. If you manage to score upwards of 99, then you can certainly get calls from some of the good institutes.
