Why are Indian people using “sir” and “sure” very often?

I don't know what's wrong with that. They're not abusing you, just trying to be respectful.
This is something taught to them right from their childhood. And it's not just an Indian thing. The culture is similar in Asia and even Africa as far as I know. It's just that you come across more Indians, Pakistanis and Bangladeshis because of their huge population.
I've had people from the west using mate, dude, bro, bud and I never go on a forum and throw a fit even when I knew most of them were trying to scam me.
Someone calling you sir doesn't stop you from doing your own due diligence and simply writing someone off just because they called you sir doesn't make them any less employable.

Nothing is wrong or right it's just people not used to something in day to day life get uncomfortable often irritated with that kind of stuff.

It's the culture in India that they want to give respect to others.

Did you lost any respect or money just because an Indian called you "Sir" and said, "sure" frequently?

Dunno about OP but I once asked freelancer if he will be able to "Add artificial software booster that supports multi core technology for cached PHP environment and would have support for MySQL and MsSQL at the same time but with CSS output" - it's a random sentence without any real meaning obviously. what I got back was "Yes sir, sure."

Did you really reached out to a skilled freelancer?

This has a lot to do with the culture. Indians are very respectful towards their guests/elders.

Sometimes they use "Madam" where applicable and mostly if not sure , they will say "No" instead of "not sure" , but when they are sure only they will say "sure". Since they are smart and knowledgable and know a lot, that is why they say "sure" a lot.

In USA, everyone while talking will say " gotcha " as expressing they understood or agree with another person. When I was in USA , I'd hear " gotcha " thousands of times a day. Nothing wrong.

They have no skills otherwise there would have been 10 TCS in India. Even in TCS there is no skills as 7 out of 8 offices of TCS are for sales.
