The india IC is not a bad move in the long run either.

But i think there is more a psychological reason to people trying to keep it then sound reasoning.
You play for 9 VC where you both start at 6. Now we are all used to games like soccer/football where points mather a lot.
So willing setting yourself from a 6-6 to a 5-7 situation in favor for your opponent is not something players will instinctively do. And if you read it like that is looks rather stupid right, giving your opponent a 2 point advantage.

Also some players play a 8VC game meaning that not defending India equals losing the game. That IC there can make the difference between winning or losing the game.

The India IC is pretty decent move if you send some russia inf down there first round ( 2 should do ).
It enables you to produce 3 inf down there from turn 2 and that is a lot more then what is usualy produced. You can easy counter germany in afrika using US troops if needed. It does not need to be part of a KJF strategy you can just as easy go KGF with an IC in india to keep that VC yours. US troops can move through finland->karellia->WR and so on to india while defending USSR.
