The map is very attractive to look at and easy to read.
One suggestion would be to make the larger cities stand out more.

Why is "map not to scale"?

My guess is because it's on a cylindrical projection, so the usual simple linear scalebar wouldn't work.

But that's making the perfect the enemy of the good. It denies viewers any sense of distance because the distance might be imprecise by a small amount. Why not show "scale at New Delhi/scale at Bangalore"?

There is no indication of the physical size of this sheet of paper. Guessing from the text, I would guess it is pretty small: A4 at best. This map may have a number of uses, but I cannot imagine using such a small map for "organizeing a trip and getting to a destination". It does look like it may be on a Mercator projection, but I would want something a tad larger scale if I was out walking with a compass.

Not showing any drainage outside India is a major drawback. The topography continues unchanged across south Asia, but where are the major rivers I know should be there? Focusing on India is a legtimate intention, but just dropping the rivers makes no sense. Better to add the rivers and instead generally desaturate the hypsometry and hydrography beyond the national borders. That makes India stand out, but keeps it in a realistic context.

I agree that the 'not to scale' thing is just disturbing. It is the wrong answer to problem.
