I work in tech, and at the company I work for employs and does business with a lot of Indian businesses and individuals. When exchanging emails, I've been noticing the use of "the same" in a completely different context than I'm familiar with.
To note a few examples, here are some phrases I've received:
"Let's look at improving the same."
"Could you please check for the same?"
"He did tell me the results from yesterday but I need to check for the same"
The use seems a bit random, as sometimes there are no prior sentences to put "the same" in context, nor is there always a subject/issue/object in comparison when "the same" is used.
Can anyone clarify?
