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.

Tata Steel targets 8.5 MT sales in India, says prices may rise
Steel Authority of India (SAIL) was recommended yesterday at Rs.47.70
New Delhi: Tata Steel plans to increase local sales to 8.5 million tonnes in the current financial year amid hopes prices will rise as demand picks up following the monsoon season. 

"In 2013-14, we are targeting a sale of 1 million tonnes over and above the 7.5 million tonnes sold in FY'13. This implies a yearly volume growth of around 13.3 per cent," a company spokesperson said. 

Hinting that the firm was on track to achieve the target, he said, "In the first quarter of FY 13-14, we have achieved a year-on-year volume growth of 26 per cent despite slow growth in the Indian market." 

Tata Steel said 98 percent of the volumes sold in the April-June quarter were in the domestic market. The company sold 2.01 million tonnes of steel in Q1. 

"Our branding initiative and market research gives us an edge over the other market players and we believe that we are on track to achieve our annual volume growth target," he said. 

On the outlook for steel prices, he said, "There is a definite pressure in the market during the seasonally weak monsoon time and also due to the weak economic growth in the country." 

However, there is scope for increasing domestic steel prices, which are generally set in line with international prices that have risen in recent times. 

"At the same time, the rupee has depreciated meaningfully, which gives an opportunity to the domestic steel makers to increase prices in India. So, there is a definite scope but the timing of any price increase would depend on the market condition," he said. 

With the rupee's drop, imports become costlier and steel shipments from overseas may decline, creating a supply gap and helping domestic manufacturers to cash in on the shortfall.
