- The progressive tense in stative verbs: I am understanding it. She is knowing the answer. Also, “I am working at XYZ Company” instead of “I work at XYZ Company”. This is an influence of traditional Hindi grammar; it is more common in northern states.
- The pluperfect tense used in verbs where International English speakers would use the simple past. I had gone for I went.
- Use of would instead of will as in “I would be going to New York this weekend”.
- Use of do the needful as in “do whatever needs to be done”
