sky bill
 n.— «Everybody partakes in plundering the funds of the state, sometimes in extremely blatant and cynical fashion, such as in the practice that has come to be known in popular parlance as “sky bill,” where work orders are given out to choice contractors and the bills for the work encashed without the actually execution of the work, understandably with the connivance of a whole hierarchy of officials and the minister.» —“Cooperative Cheating” Imphal Free Press (Imphal, India) Sept. 9, 2004.
