    @ankurgoyal IF you read article 16(2) then you'll see that it includes residence as one of the grounds on which state cannot discriminate in granting employment. Hence, decision of Haryana govt. is unconstitutional.

    1st statement of q. no. 3 is ambiguous. It says that -"Mauritius is the largest source for FDI Inflows into India." 
    But as per the analysis,  Singapore is the largest FDI source for last year and Mauritius is the largest cumulative source of FDI. which one shall be considered?
