In drupal, i have seen some modules and it's functionality. I think these
modules with minor changes in it will fulfill our requirement. Modules are
listed below,

   - Organic Group (og module) :
   - Enable users to create and manage their own 'groups'.
      - Each group can have subscribers, and maintains a group page
      where subscribers can post into.
      - Membership to groups may be open, moderated, or invitation
      - Any page,forum,poll etc. created by a user of a group 'A'
      can/cannot be access by a users of group 'B'.
      - Any post created by a user of group 'A' can/cannot give access
      to users of group 'B'.
      - og block visibility module :
   - This module allows you to specify that a block should be visible
      only within selected groups.
      - This can be used for many purposes, from providing each
      organic group with its own navigation menu, to allowing a group
to highlight
      its own featured content, etc.
      - og forum module :
   - Upon creating an og group, it creates a forum container for that
      group, with a single sub-forum.
      - A record is also placed in og_term to tie the organic group
      with the forum container's term ID.
      - When viewing groups, only forum discussions for that group are
      - The og_term table could be useful for other applications of
      tying groups to taxonomy as well.
      - og mandatory group module :
      - An add-on for the Organic Groups module that makes one group
      mandatory for all new users.
      - Choose one group that all new users will be put into. You can
      chose either an open or a closed group. Any new user will be
      as member of the group. The group manager(s) of groups that a
new user joins
      will get an automatic e-mail notice.
      - This module also  allows the admin to require a new user to
      join at least one group during registration by requiring them to
choose one
      of the groups listed in the registration form. This group is in
addition to
      any mandatory group.  This feature is disabled by default, is
independent of
      whether a mandatory group is selected, and has no effect if there are no
      groups listed in the registration form.
      - og moderate module :
      - Moderate public posts from organic groups module. Moderated
      posts will be hidden from anonymous visitors. Moderation needs
to be done by
      node administrators or another module.
      - og roles :
      - This module allows you to, for each group type, specify a list
      of roles that group administrators are allowed to assign. In the
      list (og/users/<node id>), a 'configure member roles' tab will appear if
      both the group type is allowed to configure roles and the
current user is an
      admin for the group.
      - For example, if you created a "trusted user" role, and a new
      node type called "official group," you could allow administrators of only
      official groups to add selected other group members of to the
"trusted user"
