Negative effects? Here are a few samples of visible British contributions to India.

Lot more ,like these.Let us be fair in our assessment of the British contribution to India .We do owe a lot to the British for what we are today ,be it the IT exports or the legal /educational system we have inherited from them.Before the British stepped in  ,we were not a united nation  but a religion/caste/superstition controlled society oppressing and torturing  our own people.

British gave us the Education,Law,Self Governance,Transport Systems,Parliament,Irrigation Systems,Hill Stations,Universities,Parks etc.which we would have never known of ,had they not landed in India.

We have not built any thing like Nilgiri Mountain Railways or Victoria Terminus Station ,in 70 years of independent Indian rule.We are not even able to maintain their infrastructure after they left..So to deny all their contributions,would be quite unfair.
