    Question Correct Tense?

    Hello!


    I would like to know the correctness of the following sentence.


    In our office orders it is mentioned as "This issues with the approval of the Chief Engineer" Is it grammatically o.k?


    Thank you in advance.

    For Indian-English, yes, it's commonly used in business, in education, and in government documents.

    Thank you Soup!

    Thank you once again.

    It would have been in use in 19th century British English.
