SELECT round(AVG(CONVERT(dECIMAL(10,2),IMS)),2) fROM IND13I.DBO.MSTMASSSTUDENTS
WHERE Course='B.Arch' and semester=1 and subjectcode='ar-101'
and ims not in('i','e','l','','ab')

The result is 30.800000

Why not 30.80

Not sure why, but ROUND does the rounding, but does not alter the percision/scale of the value being rounded.  

CAST(your_number as decimal(19,2)) will return only two decimal places.
SELECT ROUND(18.2000000,2)
SELECT CAST(18.200000 as decimal(19,2))
