With the limited information given, you have strong chances. Again, a lot depends on your detailed profile and how you present it to the admissions commitee.

High GMAT score will help but lot depends on SOP's, interview, referrals. This is not 2 year program where 750 GMAT score or 90% + in 10th and 12th standard can fetch you admission

International experience is not necessary. There ar many other ways of standing out from the crowd of applicants.

According to the website of IIM Kolkata, two letters of recommendation need to be submitted. I will get one letter of recommendation from my manager in TCS where I am currently working. Can anyone please suggest me from which places I can get the other letter of recommendation?
