Share post:


Dehradun, Feb 7: The Uttarakhand Assembly on Wednesday passed the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) by a voice vote, the first such move by any state after Independence that could be replicated by similar legislations in other BJP-ruled states.
The Bill was introduced in the Assembly on Tuesday, two days after the state Cabinet approved the final draft of the UCC.
The UCC Bill recommends complete ban on polygamy and child marriage, a standardised marriageable age for girls across all faiths, and a uniform process for divorce.
