Notes:
Words in red font are normally the extra word. For the cases where there is no word in red color, either of the words can be used.

This list is prepared by consolidating inputs from various sources including BB's post. Here I didn't include those words which are to be categorized as unidiomatic (rather than redundant) and those words which can be right or wrong based on the context.

Anybody is welcome to suggest more redundancies and I will update the list as it comes.
