Law Commission of India Commences Fresh Exercise to Deliberate on Uniform Civil Code

NEW DELHI: In a fresh move, the Law Commission of India decided to solicit views and ideas of the public at large and recognised religious organizations on the Uniform Civil Code.

The contentious issue of Uniform Civil Code has been a long pending poll promise made by the ruling BJP party at the Centre.

According to a press release, the 22nd Law Commission of India is inter alia examining the Uniform Civil Code upon a reference sent by the Ministry of Law and Justice.

It said initially, the 21st Law Commission of India had examined the subject on Uniform Civil Code and solicited the views of all the stakeholders through its appeal along with a questionnaire issued on October 07, 2016 and further public appeals/notices issued on March 19, 2018, March 27, 2018 and April 10, 2018.

"Pursuant to the same, overwhelming responses have been received by the Commission. The 21st Law Commission has issued the consultation paper on “Reforms of Family Law” on August 31, 2018. Since more than three years have been lapsed from the date of issuance of the said Consultation Paper, bearing in mind the relevance and importance of the subject and also the various Court orders on the subject, the 22nd Law Commission of India considered it expedient to deliberate afresh over the subject," it said.

"Accordingly, the 22nd Law Commission of India decided again to solicit views and ideas of the public at large and recognized religious organizations about the Uniform Civil Code. Those who are interested and willing may present their views within a period of 30 days from the date of notice," it added.
