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.

12.01.14: With jewelry manufacturers raising a fuss about resultant price increases and evidence piling up of goods being smuggled into the country, India has decided to ease up its restrictions on the import of gold, which triggered these phenomena, Rough and Polished reports.

The Reserve Bank of India announced that it was permitting gold refineries to import 15% of their yearly quota of dore bars during January and February, based on the amount their license entitles them to. Following the first two months, import quantities would be based on export performance.

According to regulations implemented in August 2013, only 80% of all gold imported may be sold internally, and at least 20% the imported gold must eventually head back out of the country, according to Rough and Polished.

Gold is mined and made into dore bars of moderate purity on site, then sent to refineries where they are melted down again and purified to a greater extent.
