I have just received a CV from India, where it is stated at the end
I hereby declare that information furnished above is true to the best of my knowledge
It sounds terrible to me and I was quite sure it is incorrect way to say 'provided', 'given', 'specified' etc. But after checking on internet, I have found
- to supply; provide; give: to furnish information
It still doesn't mean that 'furnished information' is a right thing to say, but it got me wondering. Is this phrase common outside of India? Does it sound right to native speaker?
