mumbai phrases 2 - Paid

1. Mall mein sale laga hai aur Rs 10000 ka shopping karo aur sirf Rs 5000 paid karna hai.
2. woh piece ke liye kitna paid kiya

Derived heavily from pre-paid and post-paid, this joins the lexicon of cellphone vocabulary.
This certainly puts paid to the hopes of the language purists.

On a related note, people also use ‘payment’ to mean ‘salary’
