One reason (at least in India) was a separation of the cultures, driven by policy in Britain. It was common for the British posted in India to wear Indian clothes, eat Indian food, and marry Indian women around the start of British rule. Towards the end, however, prostitutes from England were being shipped in. This is just one of many examples of the cultures, which had come close, starting to separate. I'm this was a mark of deeper issues - e.g. fear, on the part of policy makers in London, or perhaps a sense of failure of the whole empire "experiment". Interesting question, I will research more and get back to you!
