Definition

While this word (to my surprise) isn't an Indianism, its popularity in gorement offices makes it stand for Indian bureaucracy and red tape.

Losing one or two copies of important papers just isn't annoying enough. No, they make you run around for three copies of everything (sometimes on stamp paper) and then misplace all three.

Usage

"Kindly resubmit. In triplicate."
"That'll make six copies so far. What are you doing with all these papers?"
"You want to buy tomato or not?"
