Hi!
Which college in India are you from? That might be a factor in the admissions process

Hi.

I'm from IIT Guwahati. Also one of my referers is from France, though I could not find any master's program taught in English in France. Any suggestions?

You've got a solid profile for the colleges you're aiming for. I'd be sure of getting into at least two-threeof those with funding.

As far as I am aware, the MASt at Cambridge doesn't really ostensibly offer funding. I'm not sure German universities offer much as far as funding goes, either. Canadian Master's programs are fully funded though (or almost fully funded, for international students).
And based on your scores, you are overqualified for every Canadian university you're applying to. You'll be fine.
As for other universities with funded master's programs, I know UMass Amherst has one.
