Uniform Civil Code Towards Empowerment of Women In India | Law Articles - Legal Resources
India is a secular state that is state does not have any religion of its own. All religion is equal for a state. Article 44 of Indian Constitution as a Directive principle of state policy provides that state shall secure to every citizen of India a uniform civil code. There are many civil laws such as C.P.C. 1909, Law of contracts, The Transfer of property act etc., but these are for personal matters such as marriage, divorce, inheritance, maintenance etc. communities are governed by their own personal laws. So, we can say UCC refers to personal laws.
