Uniform Civil Code(UCC)- The Future of India

An Uniform Civil Code (UCC) is a proposed legal framework aimed at replacing personal laws based on religious scriptures and customs with a common set of laws governing personal matters for all citizens of a country, regardless of their religion or faith. The goal of a Uniform Civil Code is to promote gender equality, secularism, and social justice by ensuring that all individuals, irrespective of their religious affiliations, are subject to the same laws in matters such as marriage, divorce, inheritance, and adoption.

In the context of India, for example, there have been ongoing discussions and debates about implementing a Uniform Civil Code. India has a diverse population with various religions and cultural backgrounds, each with its own personal laws. The Indian Constitution allows for the adoption of a Uniform Civil Code under Article 44 of the Directive Principles of State Policy, but its implementation has been a topic of controversy and political debate for decades.

The Law Commission of India has decided to extend the time for public to give suggestions on the subject of Uniform Civil Code by two more weeks “in view of the overwhelming response from the public”.
