Expert Answer:

Hi Harshit,

A Relative clause is a kind of a subordinate clause which functions as a post modifier to the head word within a phrase. 

Example:

I work for the agency which is based in Delhi.

The clause 'which is based in Delhi' describes the location of the agency thus performing the function of a a post modifier to the head word i.e. the agency.
