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.

'Buy' rating on Thermax Ltd, target price Rs 850: Motilal Oswal
[Essar Refinery is the first in India and among a few in Asia to set up coal fired boilers for steam and power requirements. This is expected to result in increasing the refining margins by ~$1 per barrel......this success can be an important trend setter, particularly in the refinery and petchem segment]
We maintain our ‘buy’ rating on Thermax Ltd with an 18-month price target of R850 per share (20x FY16e at R762 per share and R86 per share in subsidiaries). At the current market price of Rs 690, the stock trades at price-to-earnings (P/E) of 27.3x FY14e, 23.4x FY15e and 17.5x FY16e. Our top picks in capital goods segment are Larsen & Toubro, Thermax, Cummins. We recently upgraded Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) to ‘buy’ and believe the risk-reward is favourable.

Coal-fired boilers installed by Thermax at Essar Oil’s refinery have completed one year of working at rated conditions. This is an important milestone the company given that this is the highest capacity boiler (750 TPH) and first pulverised coal fired system from Thermax, according to Thermax’s in-house magazine “FireSide” highlighting milestones achieved by its business divisions.

Essar Refinery is the first in India and among a few in Asia to set up coal fired boilers for steam and power requirements. This is expected to result in increasing the refining margins by ~$1 per barrel. We believe this success can be an important trend setter, particularly in the refinery and petchem segment.

Thermax has been honored with the ‘Best Innovator Award 2013’ by the Biotechnology Research Assistance Council, Govt of India. Further, as part of the indigenization program for Indian Navy, Thermax has successfully developed “Burners” for the boilers of the fighter aircraft carrier, INS Viraat. This is an important milestone and 1,000 hours of on-board initial sea runs were logged in to get the final approvals.
