I believe it has not much to do with the Indian system. It is a more wide-spread phenomena present in many emerging market countries.

Probably the most common components:
  • limited opportunities (with often complex, country specific reasons): i.e. funding and employment related - people are stacked in the system with limited things they can do or progress in any positive aspect of it
  • lack of international recognition of the institutions, both academic and industrial/commercial - note, this doesn't mean that the institutions are bad in providing whatever they provide
  • a mind set or national complexes - I will do nothing challenging (international competitive market exposure), I have no chance anyway

the problem can be described as kiasu on a massive unprecedented scale.. 29 states hundreds of castes and tribes all bringing their bits of protectionism and what you have is push and pull or tug of war for almost every aspect of daily life.. it leaves everyone frustrated and they live in this mindless struggle instead of ultimately achieving something. the smart ones leave the country.. and you see a lot of desperate ones just wanting to get out somehow.
To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late
