PIL is searching for gender-neutral, religiously impartial causes for upkeep: SC notifies the middle

T.The Supreme Court on Wednesday informed the central government about a legal battle of public interest (PIL) in which it is about “gender-neutral, religious, neutral, uniform reasons for maintenance and support”.

A bank, headed by CJI SA Bobde, said the bank issued the notice with great caution because the plea was in fact aimed at the repeal of personal laws.

(LtoR) – Justice AS Bopanna, CJI SA Bobde and Justice V. Ramasubramanian.

“They want personal laws to be abolished. You don’t say it, but it has to be done effectively. How can we intervene in personal laws? “CJI Bobde asked Senior Advocates Pinky Anand and Meenakshi Arora, who spoke out on behalf of the petitioner.

The plea filed by attorney Ashwini Upadhyay, who is also a BJP leader, said that gender-neutral, religion-neutral child support payments would be a step towards a unified civil code (UCC).

The plea alleged that the UCC would strengthen the constitutional spirit of gender justice and equality, which is considered to be the heart and soul of the constitution.

It claimed: “Adoption, succession, alimony, inheritance, guardianship, custody, age at marriage, and grounds for divorce are worldly activities. Therefore, it is the duty of the center to ensure that every man and woman has a uniform inheritance, a uniform adoption guardianship, a uniform alimony, a uniform age at marriage and uniform grounds for divorce within the meaning of Articles 14, 15, 21, 44 and international Conventions.

“Consistency of these secular activities is necessary not only to ensure gender equality, gender equality and the dignity of women, but also to promote fraternity, unity and national integration,” the petition said.

In the alternative, the plea requested an instruction to the Indian Legal Commission to examine national and international law and to prepare a report on uniform grounds for maintenance within the meaning of Articles 14 (right to equality), 15 (prohibition of discrimination against) grounds for religion , Race, caste, gender or place of birth), 21 (right to life and liberty) and 44 (UCC) as well as international conventions.
