Only academic scores are not enough to crack IIMs. You have to obtain qualifying percentile in CAT to get admission in IIM C or IIM I . Your academic scores are quite good. In simple terms, IIMs give a certain weightage to each score along with CAT Percentile, WAT, GD, PI, work experience. So there are certain criteria's on which the admission is done. For now, you are eligible but keep in mind to score in other criteria as well.

I failed in additional subject in class 12 but overall passed in class 12 so if I crack CAT exam than can I get admission in MBA college like fms IIM lucknow etc ? and right now Im in graduation with above 55 percent till 3rd semester
No there won't be any problem until and unless you are applying for the course which you have failed in, i.e if you have failed in Biology (PCMB) then you can't apply for MBBS.
Coming to the CAT issue, let me tell that for the initial Calling in IIM L only 20% weightage is given to class 12th and Graduation remaining 80 is divided between CAT score(65%) and 15% (Work Exp.).
FMS Delhi gives CAT score a weightage of 95% or sometimes 100%
