Taking a step towards implementation of Uniform Civil Code, the central government has asked the law commission to examine the issue.
PTI reported that the Law Ministry’s Department of Legal Affairs has also asked the Commission to submit a report regarding the issue.
Earlier, the Law Minister D V Sadananda Gowda had said that the decision cannot be done in a day or two.
Gowda had said,”Wider consultations will be held with various personal law boards and other stakeholders to evolve a consensus and the process may take some time.”
If implemented, it will be a huge achievement for BJP as it was part of their election manifesto.
