    Default kindly appreciate

    Res. All,

    What does "Kindly appreciate" means here -

    Kindly appreciate that we don't do this work.

    Is this a common phrase.

    Regards,

    Gulam Dastgir

    It doesn't actually mean anything, since "Kindly appreciate that we don't do this work" is the same as "We don't do this work". It is an old-fashioned and obsolete commercial usage.

    A lot of these old usages survive in India although they have disappeared elsewhere. I suspect it is because many Indian people need to use English but fear that they lack fluency. Rather than risk being wrong they hew to the old forms.
