Uttarakhand: The Chief Minister of Uttarakhand, Pushkar Singh Dhami, announced on Friday that the committee responsible for drafting the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) has successfully completed its work. Dhami stated that the implementation of the Uniform Civil Code in Uttarakhand will take place in the near future. He reminded the public that during the assembly election campaign on February 12, 2022, his party had promised to implement the UCC if they were re-elected, and now they are ready to fulfill that promise. Dhami expressed his gratitude to the people of Uttarakhand for giving his party a second consecutive opportunity to form the government.

Pushkar Singh Dhami stated, We received a clear mandate from the people, and now we will proceed to deliver on our promise.” Immediately after assuming power, the state government established a committee of experts to draft the law. Dhami mentioned that during the committee’s work, they sought input and opinions from over 200,000 individuals. He eagerly anticipated receiving the draft and assured the public that the Uniform Civil Code would be implemented in Uttarakhand, also known as Devbhoomi, as soon as they receive it. Furthermore, Dhami expressed hope that other states in the country would follow suit.

During a press conference in New Delhi,
retired Supreme Court judge and chairperson of the law drafting committee, Ranjana Prakash Desai, announced that the draft Uniform Civil Code is now complete and will be soon submitted to the Uttarakhand government. Desai mentioned that the committee took into consideration the perspectives of various countries and their legal frameworks, along with the nuances of traditional practices prevalent in different parts of Uttarakhand, while preparing the draft.

The state government established the committee in May to review existing laws pertaining to personal civil matters of Uttarakhand residents. The committee was tasked with drafting new laws or suggesting changes in areas such as marriage, divorce, property rights, succession, inheritance, adoption, and maintenance. However, Desai did not provide specific details about the draft or the committee’s report during the press conference.
