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.

Edelweiss maintains a buy rating on Axis Bank Ltd with a 12-month target price of Rs.585. 

The brokerage house says, even in a tough scenario, the bank will deliver a return on equity of 16-17%. The strong operating metrics and strengthened liability franchise also lend comfort.

Meanwhile, Axis Bank has sought approval of shareholders to raise Rs.35,000 crore through multiple instruments including green bonds and from overseas markets. The approval would be sought at Axis Bank’s 22nd Annual General Meeting of shareholders on 22 July. The funds, which would be within the overall borrowing limits of the bank, will be raised in one or more tranches on a private placement basis. 

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on 31 May 2016, notified that Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIs)/Registered Foreign Portfolios Investors (RFPIs) can now invest up to 62% of the paid-up capital of Axis Bank, from existing 49% under the Portfolio Investment Scheme (PIS).

The central bank has stated that Axis Bank has passed resolutions at its board of directors' level and a special resolution by the shareholders, agreeing for enhancing the limit for the purchase of its equity shares and convertible debentures by FIIs/RFPIs. The purchases could be made through primary market and stock exchanges, RBI said.
