Discrimination faced by Mumbaikars...

If the housing societies in Mumbai (Bombay) are only meant for families (married couples), then the government of Maharashtra should make marriage compulsory in the state/city.
Or else the government should tell its citizens where will Unmarried, Divorcees, Bachelors, Spinsters live in the city of skyscrapers or is Bombay only for those who have families.
This is one of the greatest mental blocks of Mumbaikars, who otherwise want to bask in the FALSE HALO of Cosmopolitanism.
This disease (of not giving apartments to Bachelors, Muslims, etc on rent) is specially prevalent in housing societies where the Gujaratis, Marathis and North Indians (to some extent) abound; while the rest of the population is more or less okay with the concept.
The government of Maharashtra should take this matter seriously and devise laws to eradicate this malice ASAP, so that BOMBAY (and its suburbs) becomes free of discrimination based on Marital Status, Religion, etc. Or else the Honourable Supreme Court of India should step in, and give directions to the state or central governments -- so that the fundamental rights of its citizens enshrined in the constitution of India is not violated.

(i) The FM has allocated a sum of Rs.50 bn for construction of warehouses, go-downs, silos and cold storage units. These units will be used to store agricultural produce, both in the public and the private sectors. To that extent, the wastage on food-grains is sought to be reduced.

(ii) The interest subvention scheme for providing short term crop loans to farmers at 7% interest has been continued for 2013-14, with additional subvention of 3% for prompt paying farmers. The scheme has been extended to private sector banks also.

Therefore, the FM has tried to give higher focus on removing supply bottle-necks. It seems the move was prudent, when we are in challenging fiscal circumstances, where effective implementation rather than high spending is expected to give more optimum results.

BUT STILL THE QUESTION REMAINS, "Will the Food Inflation Come Down?" It is because we have a notorious traders' lobby, which tried to sabotage the FDI in Retail Bill.
