In the last month, I had an opportunity to review close to 200 resumes and I am finding something intriguing. A majority of these resumes have personal details which include among other things:
* Father's name
* Mother's name
* Native place
* Date of birth
* Present address etc.
Is the HR department asking for such details specifically or is it a long standing (and possibly outdated in today's email times) practice that is being continued?
Would appreciate inputs from the HR community here.

These details are routine in nature and are required to identify the person completely.
Can we avoid asking for these details?
