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Is the HR department asking for such details specifically or is it a long standing (and possibly outdated in today's email times) practice that is being continued?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.
