You did not create a custom SMBIOS in config.plist/SMBIOS. Clover has no support for MacBookAir7,1, so you get MacPro3,1 data.
Is everything else okay ?? How do i get the correct SMBIOS

I didn't check "everything else". I only checked the items related to the problem you reported.

There are various tools that can generate SMBIOS (Clover Configurator is one).

Or you can enter the data manually after google searching...

I can't tell if that is a question or statement. Questions end with the '?' character.

With hotpatch, I inject graphics properties via ACPI (SSDT-IGPU.aml or SSDT-IGPU-HIRES.aml).

Sorry about that ,Does SMBIOS in config.plist affect performance in anyway ??

Yes. If the wrong one is chosen, power management does not work correctly. With your computer you can probably get away with a Haswell SMBIOS.

Sorry for asking too many questions ,so its safe to use Macbook Air(6,2) or MacBook Pro Retina (11,1)(Haswell) ? And am i only supposed to add the generated serial number to the plist only ?? Can i also use a serial number from a genuine mac??

I cannot predict the future. You should test your laptop adequately.

You cannot add only the serial#. All SMBIOS data must be in sync (model name is related to board-id, is related to BIOS version, is related to serial#).
