Should we mention Mother's Name, Religion & Declaration In CV Resume?

As i m a B.tech final year student, campus drives are coming soon. i have a query regarding resume's formats.
it is necessary to provide family details like father name, mother name, religion, nationality, D.O.B. and informations like that. also is declaration also necessary because it increase the length of resume. does it has more importance of showing in resumes.
i have seen lot of old pattern cv in which these kind of informations have been providing.

A CV is an on-paper representation of you - the professional. What to include in it is entirely your choice. But presenting information that isn't related to your job won't add value to your resume. Your father / mother / religion won't usually matter, but nationality and Date of Birth could be asked to fill in. So you may not mention those details in your CV.

Declaration, I believe is optional. I've always questioned why it's necessary to declare what you are writing in your resume is 'correct'. It HAS to be correct. Also, when I graduated, I accommodated all my information in just one page. I paid lot of attention to formatting and presenting the information and even had interviewers appreciate the way I had presented information.

You might take a look at our Resume Template Format For Graduating Engineers.

Could you post the text that you want to use as your declaration? That would help us understand better.

I personally find it a little out of the place. You certifying yourself does not make any sense to me. I'd not include it in my resume. I'd recommend removing it.
