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.

The Indian construction industry increased in value at a CAGR of 15.10% during the review period. This growth was supported by the country’s expanding economy, increased government spending on public infrastructure, high urbanization and a supportive foreign direct investment (FDI) system. 

Construction industry growth is expected to remain strong over the forecast period, as a result of the government’s commitment to improving the country’s infrastructure. The infrastructure, industrial and commercial construction markets collectively accounted for 74.2% of the total Indian construction industry in 2012. Consequently, the contribution of these three markets will be significant to the overall Indian construction industry growth over the forecast period. 

The Indian construction industry’s output is expected to record a CAGR of 15.45% over the forecast period. The general outlook for construction activity during the five-year forecast period is positive. Construction activity in the residential market will be driven by demand side factors, such as the growth in nuclear families and the rising urbanization rate, as well as government support and state investment in affordable housing schemes.
