Decoding the code :UNIFORM CIVIL CODE (Hereafter UCC)
UCC was brainchild of Dr. B .R.Ambedkar.
UCC means same law for all the Citizens of India.For Marriage,Divorce,Land disputes -all religions will have to follow one common code.At present,each religion have their own Personal Law to settle their matters .UCC is a secular law . Directive Principles of State Policy also mentioned about UCC in Article 44.But till date ,it is not implemented in our Country. Muslim,Parsi and Christians have their personal law boards .While Hindu Civil Law include Hindu,sikhs,Buddhism and Jains. If UCC implemented ,all religions will have common law.
In 1950s the Hindu Civil Law was amended but other personal Law were unchanged.The main difficulty in implementing the UCC is that for this all laws need amendment .
