In some instances overseas travel insurance is required to get a visa to travel to certain countries. Schengen country (many countries of Western Europe constitute the Schengen countries) consulates insist on having travel insurance with a minimum of $37,500 coverage. However even if insurance is not required for visa purposes, it is still prudent to purchase health insurance for the following reason.
Health care costs in India is much less when compared to developed countries like the USA, Japan and other European countries. In most of these countries medical care is not subsidized by the government, and medical bills can easily exceed thousands of dollars which patients have to pay by themselves. Most people in these countries have some form of health insurance, however these insurance policies are not available to visitors.
Given this scenario, purchasing travel insurance can be viewed as a necessity. Along with medical coverage, these travel insurance policies also provide coverage for baggage loss, baggage delay, loss of passport etc.
You can purchase it at any time before leaving India.

Yes you can purchase for only partial duration of the entire stay. However the purpose of purchasing insurance is in the event of unanticipated medical emergencies. One can never be sure when such an emergency can happen. Having purchased insurance for part of their stay will not help in the event of an emergency during the uninsured period.
A month is calculated as 30 continuous days from the start date requested and it can include two partial calendar months.
The minimum duration varies for different insurance plans. It is typically for as little as five days.
