    Welcome to the forum.

    Sir, This is unnecessary and offends the female teachers of this forum.

    I want to know if this is a correct sentence.
    It is not correct.

    Perhaps you mean 'I will be taking up/resuming my duties on 16 April, 2016'.

    Without more context, it's hard to say.

    I would use the/your office, or say something like I will be starting work at your office on 16 April.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I have changed your thread title so that it includes the words from your query.

    Note my other changes above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: I will be joining office on 16 April 2016

    I have merged the two threads. As you can see, ivarsharma, you had already been told in the first thread not to address us all as "Sir" yet you went on to do it again in the second thread.

    Please make sure you follow the advice you are given in this forum.

    But it's not too hard to say that join your duties is unlikely to be correct in any context- you can join meetings, etc, but not duties IMO.
