Hello ishita das,
First of all congrats for securing 124.5 in
NLU 2019 . As per my knowledge students below 1k ranks are eligible for almost
all top NLU (it will be little tough if you are from general category) . So you
have very high chance of securing good course in 2nd round of counselling else
last round counselling is all yours :)
I am assuming you a general candidate (for
reserved category it will be much easier) As per previous year cutoff and
trends you will definitely get assured seat in tier 2 NLUs Though it will tough
for getting seat in top ones still you have hope and you have to wait till last
round for getting top colleges .

It would be very difficult to get a call from UPES since admission at UPES generally ends at a much lesser rank. You may get into IP University and some of the college's were you stand a chance to get admission are as follows;
1. Delhi Institute of Rural Development
2. Delhi Institute of Metropolitan Studies, NOIDA
3. Chander Prabhu Jain College of Higher Studies
With the score you're mentioning you'll get a rank somewhere between 9900-11200. If you fall in general category then I'm afraid you don't have a chance in UPES Dehradun as their closing rank lies below 3000. But if you belong to reserved category then you may have some chances in the college. But in general category you can check out other private colleges like
