Apparently a way of describing any woman who is not a sati savitri and who therefore must be a ultra-fast POMO chick of some sort. Though why one would compare ladice of any type to used goods is beyond comprehension.
The term is perhaps derived from the "make-up" that needs to be applied before selling a "banged-up" gaddi on the second-hand market. Imagine buying a "lightly used" Yezdi for sale in a chor bazaar. The chalu seller hides the dent with the paint and with a straight face say it's first class and jugaad-free. Such must be the attitude of any woman standing up against the excessive bandobast in Delhi today. Whattey naansense, I say!
Popularized by our very own Pranab da's very own Bangla son: Abhijit Mukherjee, one can also say it refers to the anachronistic and chauvinistic Uncleji ideologies that passes off as cultural leadership in India today.
Or read the translation below...
"What's basically happening in Delhi is a lot like Egypt or elsewhere, where there's something called the Pink Revolution, which has very little connection with ground realities. In India, staging candle-lit marches, going to disco - we did all this during our student life too, we were students too - I know every well what kind of character students should have. Those who claim to be students - I can see many beautiful ladice among them - highly dented and painted - they're giving interviews on TV, they've brought their children to show them the scenes. I have grave doubts whether they're students, because shundoris of that age are generally not good students."

It is similar to the Pomo chick in mass-energy, but opposed on all other dimensions like spin, charge, literary pretensions, movement in space-time, and willingness to tolerate general or moral relativism.
Both POMO chick and Mo-pillai are produced by accelerating Jesuit theology to high velocity and colliding it with TamBrahm strictures in single-sex convented environments otherwise known as the LHC or Large Hard-on Colluder. Yield is enhanced by putting both particles through a sequence of expensive lau failures. The collisions produces a matched pair of POMO chick and Mo-pillai who depart to opposite ends of the universe at great velocity but in opposite ideological directions. One particle is moving forward in time and the other is moving backward, but sadly due to general and moral relativity one is unable to determine which is which.
Examples of movement in space time, showing Condom coupling
Pomo chicks: St. Stephens/LSR --> LSE --> Gayathri Spivak--> useless liberal arts degree --> jhola + cause --> angrily liberate the females
Mopillai: REC Guindy --> Illinois Insititute of Technology --> Freidrich Hayek --> useless engineering degree --> mortgage + stock options --> angrily enforce the patriarchy
The particles cyclically recollide every winter at Recyclotron (otherwise known as Bangalore Club, or Tamil-matrimony.com) spitting off a random collection of quirks (top, bottom, charm, strange etc.) , leapt-on jokes and of course the elusive Higgs Boozon.
