    Post USE OF "SUPPOSED TO BE DOING SOMETHING"

    Are the following use of "supposed to be" correct?


    Example -

    He was supposed to be coming back to me. But at the last moment I wanted the breakup.


    I was supposed to be going to a party tomorrow evening so I said I couldn't come and meet you.

    In my opinion, yes. But many speakers of the standard Indian dialect of English would not understand your sentences, which I presume is the reason for your question.
