Well, what you said is true. But the society in India functions, though in its own way...

I think it all comes down to population and resulting resource crunch, leaving folks trying to find all sorts of ways to use situations to their advantage. While one can argue that it comes as a part of culture as well, I would say the said culture develops because while we can act self-less and well-mannered for some time or even some generations, poverty and competition eventually gets to you and makes you behave it all sorts of ways.

Corruption only adds to the plight. That must be stopped.
