UCC In Gujarat: Cabinet Approves Formation Of Committee To implement Uniform Civil Code
The Gujarat cabinet has approved the formation of a committee to implement Uniform Civil Code in the state, says state Home Minister Harsh Sanghvi.
Earlier in July, the union government said it does not propose to set up a committee to implement a uniform civil code (UCC) and added that it has asked the Law Commission to examine various issues on the matter and make recommendations.
In the same month however, a five-member committee formed to implement the Uniform Civil Code in Uttarakhand held its first meeting in New Delhi on 4 July.
Gujarat is to vote for a new Assembly in late November/early December.
