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.

Some Encouraging Points Concerning the NDA government
(i) Foreign direct investment during October 2014 and May this year grew 46 per cent to USD 61.58 billion after the launch of Make in India programme. To further boost investment environment and bring in foreign capital, the NDA government is taking various measures like opening up FDI in many sectors, carrying out FDI related reforms and improving ease of doing business.
(ii) Sectors that attracted maximum FDI include services, trading, automobile and power.
(iii) The NDA government has approved as many as 259 proposals for setting up of special economic zones relating to IT/ITeS and electronic hardware sector in many parts of the country. During the last four years and the current financial year (up to July 15), the Board of Approval, under the ministry, gave more time to as many as 139 developers of SEZs, including the IT/ITeS sector, to complete their projects.
(iv) Some of the biggest global investors such as Morgan Stanley, Macquarie and Ivanhoe Cambridge (an arm of Canada's CDPQ) are re-entering Indian real estate after a long gap. These three investors are looking to forge joint ventures worth Rs.4,000 crore. These investors, along with others such as Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, Merrill Lynch, Credit Suisse, Lehman Brothers and Deutsche Bank, had either exited Indian real estate or became dormant after the global financial crisis of 2008, as they sought to clean their balance sheets and concentrate on home markets.
