#3 SCFI, the rains have affected the southern inland parts only. Large, forested plains and marshlands get completely submerged and the administrations that built the dams built them mostly on paper. The village people and small towns suffer as a result.
Long standing problem of socialist countries, embezzlement and corruption in the name of contracting. But the camps are duly provided by Army and the rescues and airlifts by Air Force. Despite hundred million $ budgets for proper dams and stuff, the poorest civilians wait every year to be hit by calamity. Farmers, tribes, villagers...
Over population and climate is also a reason. Just something that can't be helped. So we keep the rescue and shelter camps ready for such exigencies.

#4 Dron, that's why I mentioned Kashmir. It's pretty high with plenty of drainage and dry grounds. It admitting, is a bit far to travel to though.
Not much I can say about India government system, but to say they will have to deal with the corruption somehow. there does seems to be some shining stars within the government, but whether or not those are enough, time will tell.
