    The use of the word sir generally denotes an Indian worker. They are restricted as to what tasks they can do. They are either wanting you to open up your Hits to that country, or they are requesting a qualification to do your hits. Sometimes it might be that they have tried to open an Mturk account but have been declined so they think you can give them an "invitation" to work at Mturk. But, it doesn't actually work that way as only Amazon can approve or deny their application request.
