The Law Commission of India requested opinions and recommendations on the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) from members of the general public, reputable religious organisations, and other interested parties.
The 22nd Law Commission of India decided to again seek opinions and suggestions about the Uniform Civil Code from the general public and reputable religious organisations, according to the notice published in the official gazette of India. Within 30 days of receiving the notice, anyone who is interested and willing may submit their opinions to the Law Commission of India via email at email@example.com or through a button.
The notice stated that the 22nd Law Commission of India has been investigating the topic of the Uniform Civil Code since the reference dated June 17, 2016 was sent by the Ministry of Law & Justice. The 21st Law Commission of India initially looked into the issue of the Uniform Civil Code and sought input from all parties through an appeal, a questionnaire, and other public notices. The Commission has received a plethora of submissions in regard to the same. On August 31, 2018, the 21st Law Commission released its “Reforms of Family Law” consultation document.
The 22nd Law Commission of India determined that it was necessary to reexamine the subject through new considerations due to the fact that more than three years had passed since the Consultation Paper was issued, taking into account the significance and relevance of the subject matter as well as the numerous court orders related to it, as well as the passage of time.
