few details about myself. I have 3 years of experience in consulting and holds Masters of science degree from George Mason university , Virginia, USA with 3.8 GPA.

The masters and GPA help. If you are already in the US, that will help your admission opportunities. There’s a typo in the original question – so I’m assuming you meant Q 48, V34, but correct me here if I guessed incorrectly.
The quant is fine. The overall score is low for top 20, but ultimately okay as long as your work experience is solid and you can craft a compelling application. 
I’d say you are an okay – not great, but reasonable – candidate for top 20 MBA programs in the US. You have a shot at top 5-10 if you have a very specific set of interests and can convey them properly. I would not expect success with top 5 programs. 
Recap for US programs (and top European/Asian):
top 5 – unlikely
top 5-10 – not likely but possible with amazing app
top 10-20 – reasonable
top 20-50 – probable
Programs in India:
For the top programs your GMAT is too low and your quant is too low. I think your chances are better at an American program if you have a compelling story. In my experience, Indian schools are far more rigorous about eliminating candidates based on scores. Your experience may vary!

Thanks for the reply , Can i know from your experience What will be the average Score Indian Colleges will consider for top 10 colleges.

I would be most concerned with the Quant scaled score. I would want at least a 49 – so you’re close, but still need a little work. If you earn a 49 and can improve your verbal even just a little bit, you’ll be above 700. I’ve found Indian programs almost “require” 720 (that’s not the whole story, but…). They might forgive the 34 verbal, but you have to have 49+ quant at a top-top program.
 
If you have other strong metrics you may be able to persuade the team, but I would retake the GMAT with a focus on improving quant and verbal (verbal will help your 700+ score a lot more!).

I will give one more try to GMAT and update you with the score, then we can decide about the colleges. I really appreciate the work you guys are doing 🙂
