    we can not measure absolute potential at a point. so,we go for the difference by keeping a reference point standard. normally ground potential is used as difference.

    No way... I think you messed up buddy. We can measure potential of a point if the intensity of the force field is known. \[\int\limits_{a}^{\infty} F.dx= the potential at that point, a\]
