Engineers Australia actually provide a template for Statutory Declarations which might serve as a good guide. See Here for the template.
This link provides details of people/occupations that might serve as an appropriate witness.
Hope this helps

Thanks for the response.
I have two questions which i thought i will share with you:
Firstly, the sample which was shared was like "self declaration"by the applicant, whereas the MSA booklet indicates that the statutory declaration/affidavit is to be made by the direct superior. I tried finding samples but was unable to find any. Can you share any sample for the same. Is it be done on a stamp paper?
Secondly, since my employment was in india (who in india will be suitable to witness the affidavit?). the authorised people/organisation which you indicated covers people/entities from Australian organisations.
Will be grateful if you can clarify these points.
