Hi,

Is the statement below old fashioned? In Canada, it sounds odd, but I know that this is a common and probably useful feature of English in India.

Please do the needful

Can you list other statements having the same meaning?

Please do whatever is necessary.



I am gratetful for your assistance in this matter.



Best wishes, Clive
