To revert back or to reply?

Indians are again the only people who “revert back” when they intend to “reply”. Why, oh why?

To revert means to return to its previous state. Try as I might, I cannot revert back to being a baby, or a 21-year-old. 😀

Correct: I will reply to you next week.

Incorrect: I will revert next week.
