    Thank you

    Welcome to the forum.

    If I have read your post correctly, your sentences are:

    1) I am put at andheri
    2) I will come today itself

    Unfortunately, neither of those make any sense at all. Can you tell us what they mean using different words?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    sorry my first sentence was 1)I am put up at andheri and the second one is the same 2)I will come today itself....these are two statements that Indians use when they say these things I wanted to know if they are correct when we talk about simplifying English so that even non Indian customers would understand what I am saying....thanks

    I still don't understand sentence 1. Is Andheri a place?
    For sentence 2, we would just say "I will come today".

    Thank you
    * I am in Andheri.
    * I work in Andheri.
    * My job/assignment is in Andheri.

    * I will come today.

    Be sure to always capitalize proper nouns! Names of cities are always capitalized. (Andheri)

    Yes Andheri is a place and by that statement I meant letting someone know that I stay in Andheri and I wanted to know if we say "in Andheri" or "At Andheri" and as far as the second sentence goes thank you for the help with that.

    There is no need to write a new post to say thank you to anyone. Simply click the "Like" button in the bottom right-hand corner of any post you found helpful.

    If you are going to be a regular user of the forum, you need to concentrate on the rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I" (first person singular).
    - Capitalise all proper nouns (English, Andhari, London, Prince Charles).
    - Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
