GMA IL Warning is Genuine?

Received a Gmail reminder asking to "VERIFY YOUR FREE GMA IL ACCOUNT NOW". It was from Gmail Team: This message is from Gmail messagin center to all Gmail free account owners and premium account owners. It has come to our notice that the rate ofphishingattacks against Gmail! uders recently is at an alarming rate. We have taken steps to protect your Gmail! accounts through a mail verification process. Please fill in the following details.

The details requested are Gma il ID, Password, Date of birth, country or territory.

Then enter Security Image.

Seems like Gmail, sounds like Gmail but I am not sure its genuinely from Gmail.

There's also a warning.

Warning!!! Account owner that refuses to update his or her account within Seven days of receiving this warning will lose his or her account permanently.
Thank you for using Gmail !
Warning Code:XXXXXXXXXXXX
Thanks,
The Gmail Team

I have not responded to the email with particulars requested because of suspicion.

Why do they want my password when password is not to be given out to anybody? Then why is it GMA IL and not Gmail. Even the M in Gmail is not in the form of an envelope.

I think most Gmail account holder receive this email. Whats your response?
