Whether you get a CAT call depend upon a lot of factors.First of it depends on which IIM you are looking to get into.Your grades in 10nth 12th and BTech is very good.But your CAT score is a little low.But it doesn't matter.IIMs like Indore give more weightage to your 10nth and 12th marks.Some don't even consider your undergraduate marks.So it all depends.I think you have a good chance of getting a CAP call for sure.All the best
Your chance of getting a common CAP call for the new IIM s is high.I think 22 in DILR is enough for you to make the sectional cutoff.All the best.Hope i was able to help.
Your academic career seems very good. You have done good in CAT. 80 - 83 Percentile range shows that you can definitely expect IIM.

You should definitely give priority for the above five IIMs and try to get admission there. Considering last few years' cutoff, you should definitely get admission in any of the IIMs.
