Planning for IM/Neuro. Recently I have seen many people discussing that below 250 score we wont get an interview without contacts. You think thats true? And please give me advise to improve my CV. Thanks!

  If you have publications, you should be fine. Contacts helps to get an interview but thats it. Selection is typically based on your CV and performance.

  Contacts are important for the application, but if have good scores and hands-on clinical experience in US. Then it wont be a problem if you dont have contacts. Try to get hands-on clinical experience more and get strong LORs.
