Registering Live In Relationships Violates Right To Privacy

New Delhi: “This is the first time that the concept of a Live-In relationship got legal sanction but the question of violation of privacy in this is something that courts will decide, Constitutional Expert and former Secretary General of Lok Sabha, PDT Achary said on the registration of live-in relationships under Uttarakhand Uniform Civil Code.

In an exclusive interview with Lawstreet Journal, PDT Achary questioned the requirement of informing parents about the relationship if any of the partners is under the age of 21. He added that an individual over 18 is an adult and does not need parental permission for what he or she chooses to do.

Notably, Section 386 of UCC allows any third party to submit a complaint that a live-in relationship has not been registered.

What is the Uniform Civil Code?

This Uniform Civil Code (UCC) comes under Article 44 of the Indian constitution which refers to directive principles of state policy. The Directive Principles of State Policy (DPSP) states that the state shall undertake to offer a unified set of laws to its citizens within the Indian boundaries, regardless of their religion. It was seen as a desirable norm by Dr B.R. Ambedkar, the architect of the Constitution, though he felt the new republic was not ready for it at the time.
