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.

Policy amendments on REITs beneficial
Jun 25, 2016: The latest policy announcements made by the government has positioned India as one of the most open economies. The various announcements convey the government’s commitment to reforms and to making India a lucrative investment destination for corporates across the globe. With these structural shifts, apart from generating new employment opportunities, the country is here to witness rapid infrastructure development in the near future.
The measures announced by the government regarding FDI as well as Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) will facilitate investments into the country. Higher investment volumes are likely to result in greater inflow of foreign investments and encourage domestic players in sectors such as manufacturing with cutting edge technology, civil and defence aviation, food processing and retail, says Anshuman Magazine, chairman and managing director, CBRE, South Asia Pvt Ltd. The growth of these sectors will directly benefit the real estate market in India, especially office, retail, logistics and warehousing segments, among others.
With regard to REITs, the changes proposed by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) are clearly indicative of the eagerness to allow investments in REITs on a priority basis. The announcement to allow 20% investment in under-construction projects is likely to lead to an increase in potential yield returns, necessary for a successful REIT listing in the country, he says.
Overall, these announcements by the government are a much needed step in the direction of boosting the overall economy of the country
