Mumbai: Any corporate office is filled with people who can irritate you, I mean different types of people, some who speak loud on phone, some who criticize the company yet don’t leave it, but the top of the table position s occupied by people who are constantly on look out for a charger for their phone. And even in those category of people there are few whose phone is at least 70 % charged yet somehow they get this urge to go and find about a charger. lightning-xlarge_trans_NvBQzQNjv4BqpiVx42joSuAkZ0bE9ijUnGH28ZiNHzwg9svuZLxrn1U

The no of such cases is on a rise in all the metro cities. In Mumbai itself there were about 200 such complaints in the past week and now is when people are coming out in open and protesting against these category of people. Faking News team did a survey in Mumbai and found many such offices where such people exist. Some start their day by asking for charger, some ask for it 3-4 times a day, and some come to office just to charge their phones. The issue when it came under the scrutiny of Supreme Court finally got resolved.

The Supreme Court’s special bench has passed the judgement that ‘Any person who asks for a charger even after having 70% battery charged in any office will be punishable under the 70 Penal code.”. There was objection raised by corporate companies regarding the order as they think people would stop coming to office when this order gets implemented in full throttle.
