I might rather not generalize. If the page provides seperate functionality, the idea of having multiple forms sounds good. Cause I would not expect the user to enter data on one portion of the screen, say a table/menu/form and expect the required functionality if he were to click on a button having a label which has no relavence to that on some other portion of the page.

I think its not a good design in which you may loose the data entered by the users in different forms as only one form is submitted .try to move it into different pages
I disagree - having multiple forms on a page is fine. It is the job of the UI designer to make sure that users do not get confused over what should be entered, and what gets submitted.
