UCC IN INDIA: A FAR-FETCHED DREAM OR A POSSIBLE REALITY?
By Karuna Varadaraj & Anusha Sushena
The provision for a Uniform Civil Code laid down in Article 44 of the Indian Constitution proposes to formulate, and thereby implement a set of uniform laws governing all citizens, regardless of their religion. Its main objective is to uphold secularism through national integration, however, there are certain impediments like complex marriage and divorce laws. The rationale behind the deferment in bringing the UCC to life, is also a matter of concern. This opinion piece aims at covering various case laws and existing legislations to make sense of, and appreciate the situation before us with a better understanding.
