The GMAT scores at these schools tend to be extremely competitive - the averages tend to be in the 700+ range - so your GMAT score will put you at a disadvantage. Focus on the elements that set your profile apart from the many other applications with similar profiles (and who may have higher GMAT scores). The NGO experience will help, as will your other extracurriculars and languages.

I believe you are an overseas Indian candidate, in which case the minimum GMAT required to even apply at IIMA is 700. (see link below)
http://iima.ac.in/programmes/admission-details/admission-procedure-for-overseas-indian-candidates-2017-19-batch.html
IIMA will also have half of the seats taken by reserved category. On top of that, work ex is not mandatory and its a 2 year program. The class will probably have some people as young as 21-22 which kinda kills the idea of a great cohort.
ISB on the other hand has no reservation, 1 year program with a cohort of 770 students, mandatory work ex requirement and more international opportunities (that's where your language ability will make you stand apart)
