The cutoffs are decided based on various factors like number of applicants, number of seats available, difficulty level of the exam etc.The expected percentile cutoff for SIBM, Pune is 98.5 and for SCMHRD, Pune is around 96. So in your case chances may be little low for a call from both institutes but the cutoffs may vary slightly so you can apply and try , other factors like past academic record, work experience etc will be considered. If you get a call, then do take Group Exercise (GE), Writing Ability Test (WAT) and Personal Interview (PI) rounds seriously as they are considered for final selection.
All the best
