What is the difference between "resume" and "bio-data"?

It is difficult to point out the difference between the two. Only in the Indian context, I guess one could say that there is no difference between them. A "bio-data" is a resume.

A native speaker, on the other hand, may not understand what you mean by "bio-data". The word does not exist in most native varieties of English.

The words commonly used by native speakers are CV (curriculum vitae) and resume.

In India, however, the word `bio-data' is much more common than the other two.
