Law Commission seeks views, ideas from public on UCC


The Law Commission of India (LCI) on Wednesday sought views and ideas from the public and recognised religious organisations on the Uniform Civil Code (UCC).The 22nd LCI is inter alia examining the UCC, a reference sent by the Ministry of Law and Justice, a statement said.“Initially the 21st LCI had examined the subject on UCC and solicited the views of all the stakeholders through its appeal along with a questionnaire dated October 7, 2016 and further public appeals/notices dated March 19 and 27,2018 and April 10,2018,” the Ministry of Law and Justice said in a communique.Pursuant to the same, overwhelming responses had been received by the Commission.“The 21st Law Commission had issued the consultation paper on ‘Reforms of Family Law’ on August 31, 2018. Since more than three years have 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 considered it expedient to deliberate afresh over the subject,” the Ministry said.It added, “Accordingly, the 22nd Law Commission decided again to solicit views and ideas of the public at large and recognised religious organisations about the UCC.”“Those who are interested and willing may present their views within a period of 30 days from the date of notice by Email at membersecretary-lci[at]gov[dot]in to the Law Commission of India,” the release said.
