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.

NEW DELHI, July 2, 2014: Steel and Mines Minister Narendra Singh Tomar has written to states seeking their co-operation for evolving a transparent system of allocating mines.

The minister is slated to meet Chief Ministers of various mineral-rich states to take their views on bringing amendments to the more than half-a-century old mining law, an official statement said.

Tomar is likely to meet Chief Ministers of Goa and Rajastan tomorrow and is slated to meet Karnataka Chief Minister on Friday, it said.

Expressing concern over negative public perception with regard to mining, Tomar has urged states to come together to evolve a "transparent and efficient system of allocation of leases along with a robust regulatory framework that best serves India's interests".

"The letter also enunciates the need to safeguard environmental concerns and clearly spells out that 'intergeneration equity' should not be compromised in the process of easing the mining sector," the statement said.

Priorities laid out include re-invigorating of the mining sector, improving investment scenario and reaping benefits of enhanced technology and best practices, it added.

Tomar has written to the Chief Ministers soliciting their views on amendments to the Mines and Minerals (Development & Regulation) Act 1957 and relevant rules to find "expeditious and acceptable solutions" to the mining issues confronting the country.
