I am currently building my resume in SHARELATEX, here i am using a Template in Cv or Resume - EuropeCV (<- Link). In this tex file there is no code to include Title on my CV. for ex I want to put a title as 'curriculum vitae' on the top of my Resume. Is there any method to do it? I have attached a image.

And I want decrease the length of the line spacing and para spacing. enter image description here

The lines with comments are new or modified from sharelatex example:

\documentclass[helvetica,nologo,openbib,totpages]{europecv} %removed notitle, flagCMYK, replaced logo with nologo
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage[a4paper,top=1.27cm,left=1cm,right=1cm,bottom=2cm]{geometry}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{url}
\usepackage{setspace}%package to control the overall spacing

\makeatletter%
\renewcommand*\ecvtitle{%taken from definition file ecven.def and adapted to requirement

            i\ecv@kern t\ecv@kern a\ecv@kern e}}
}
\def\ecv@picture[#1]#2{%
    \def\ecvarg{#2}%
    \ifx\@empty\ecvarg\renewcommand*{\ecvdrawpicture}{}\else%
    \renewcommand*{\ecvdrawpicture}{\begin{picture}(80,0)(0,50)\includegraphics[#1]{#2}\end{picture}}%adjust the (0,50) params to fine tune the picture position
    \fi}%
\makeatother%
\setstretch{0.9}% sets the line spacing to 90%

    @prasadak.kle I updated the answer to be "like that"; to make it "like this" remove \ecvspace{-1cm} or use another value in place of -1cm.
