When will Mumbai's Housing Societies feature on The News hour?

A colleague of mine who is getting married this month was pretty happy after they identified a flat in Andheri W that they planned to rent after they got back. Then I heard that the rent deal fell through. The housing society insists that they need a wedding certificate. Their parents met the society and yet the society didn't agree. And they can't even take the house when they get married as the certificate needs 2,3 weeks. That they are planning the wedding in some coastal spot in Kerala with loads of folks coming in doesn't count.

The landlady is helpless and loses a tenant.

There are many mafias in Mumbai and the housing societies sit pretty much at the top
