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.

Government approves Rs.1.83 trillion infrastructure projects to boost confidence

NEW DELHI: The Cabinet has approved infrastructure projects worth Rs 1.83 trillion ($28.38 billion), Finance Minister P Chidambaram said on Tuesday, part of a government drive to fast-track clearances and win back investor confidence.

A cabinet panel cleared 18 power projects at a cost of Rs 83000 crore, Chidambaram told a news conference. Chidambaram emphasised that the government's highest priority is to restart the investment cycle. "Investment cycle has started and we are pushing it further," he said.

As regards the fuel supply agreements (FSA) for the power projects, the Minister said all the FSAs would be signed by September 6. The earlier deadline of signing the FSA was August 31.

Asked about the Food Security Bill, Chidambaram said that the government has provided enough money for it, and despite that will be able to maintain the budget targets on the fiscal front.

The government set up the CCI, headed by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, to expedite decisions on approvals for implementation of projects.

The stalled projects are initially tracked by a project monitoring group wherein ministries or department concerned discuss issues that are adversely impacting implementation of the identified projects.

A web-based information system has also been put in place wherein entrepreneurs can provide details of their project as well as the issues that are inhibiting smooth implementation.

Based on the discussions, efforts are made to expedite clearances approval and the final decisions or unresolved policy issues and clearances are taken by CCI.

The Minister further said that banks have already disbursed as much as Rs 30,000 crore for the power sector projects and with clearances in place they would provide more funds for these projects.
