Uniform Civil Code – A Constitutional Perspective

By Aditya Raj, Amity University Patna.*


The Uniform Civil Code (UCC) is a highly debated issue in India since independence. It proposes to replace the personal laws based on religion with a common set of laws applicable to all citizens, irrespective of their religion, gender, or other identities. While proponents argue that the UCC would promote gender justice, secularism, and national integration, opponents contend that it would violate the right to religious freedom and cultural diversity. This paper examines the history, legal framework, and socio-political implications of the UCC in India.
