Q.

There was a perception in India once that even a diploma offered by a not so good foreign university is better than a degree offered by a reputed Indian university. But this scenario seems to be changing now. What is the reason?

So too with the degrees offered by our Universities. Of course, a part of the blame had to be taken by us only, because the Govts of the day never understood the importance of quality education and except for the IITs or IIMs and a few institutions where the intake was not even .0001% of the total students, rest of the Universities were mired in corruption, constantly under Govt meddling and left to rot year after year.
