In a big move, the Law Commission of India, on June 14, sought the views and ideas of the public and recognized religious organizations about Uniform Civil Code (UCC). The official press release regarding the same read, “The 22nd Law Commission of India is inter alia examining the Uniform Civil Code, a reference sent by the Ministry of Law and Justice”.

“Initially, the 21st Law Commission of India had examined the subject on Uniform Civil Code and solicited the views of all stakeholders through its appeal along with a questionnaire dated 7.10.2016 and further public appeals/notices dated 19.3.2018, 27.3.2018, and 10.4.2018”, the release states.

It has been mentioned that as a result of the same, overwhelming responses have been received by the Commission. The 21st Law Commission had issued the consultation paper on ‘Reforms of Family Law’ on 31.8.2018, and since more than 3 years have passed after the consultation paper was issued, the 22nd Law Commission has now decided to mull this issue over, in a fresh and expedient manner, as the subject is of significant importance and relevance, and so have been the related court orders in the matter.

“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”, the release mentioned.

Interested individuals can present their views within a period of 30 days from now. Emails can be sent to [email protected], to the Law Commission of India.
