Law Commission to submit report to Centre soon on 'Uniform Civil Code'

New Delhi: The Law Commission of India had submitted its report to the Government of India regarding the sedition law. After submitting its recommendation to the government to uphold the sedition law, the Law Commission is now eyeing the Uniform Civil Code (UCC). It is believed that the Law Commission can soon submit its report on UCC to the government.

According to the report, Justice (retired) Ranjana Prakash Desai, who heads the committee that drafted the UCC for Uttarakhand, has expressed similar possibilities after meeting the members of the Law Commission on Friday (June 2). Justice Ranjana Prakash Desai, a retired Supreme Court judge, held discussions with her committee members along with Law Commission chief Justice Rituraj Awasthi, members K T Sankaran, Anand Paliwal and D P Verma.

During this time, the draft made by the committee regarding the Uniform Civil Code for Uttarakhand was also discussed. Justice Ranjana Prakash Desai, after the meeting, said the commission is working to reach out to stakeholders and study the issue. This is understandable from the discussions with the members of the Law Commission. After taking over as chairman in November last year, Justice Rituraj Awasthi had also indicated that the 22nd Law Commission would carry forward research work on important issues pending in the previous commission. Clearly, there is also a case of uniform civil code.   

What the central government says:-

In an affidavit filed in the Supreme Court, the Centre has clearly stated that Part IV of the Constitution contains a detailed account of the Directive Principles of State Policy, Article 44 of which states that it is the duty of the government to enforce the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) for all citizens. Article 44 is based on the concept of equal law for all the people of the country with regard to succession, property rights, marriage, divorce and custody of the child. The government has also said in the affidavit that Article 44 separates religion from social relations and personal law. People of different religions follow different property and matrimonial laws which is against the unity of the country. Let us know that some courts of the country have also demanded the implementation of one country one law by advocating a uniform civil code, so it is believed that the Center can take a decision on it soon.
