Definition

A building full of sarkari babus who are supposed to provide power and electricity in punjab. But can be seen sleeping while irate consumers stand in long lines to pay electricity bills for power which they never received. Usually the busiest place when a power-cut is imposed. Quick to impose power-cuts but forget to reinstate power when the time comes.

Usage

Sarkari Babu- "Oh yaar AC tan chala"
Clerk-"Sir bijli ghat hai"
SB- "Acha fir power cut kar de apne bahot garmi hoyi payi hai"
(SB- Switch on the office AC
C- Sir power is not upto the limit
SB- then impose a power-cut in the are as its too hot in here)
