    Uniform Civil Code: Supreme Court tells government to take swift decision


    The Supreme Court on Monday asked the Centre to come up with a swift decision on uniform civil code to bring an end to the continuing confusion over personal laws.

    A bench headed by justice Vikramjit Sen told solicitor general Ranjit Kumar, "If you want to have a uniform civil code have it, you want to follow the uniform civil code, follow it. But you must take a decision soon."

    The SC also asked the government to come up with a proposal to amend the Christian divorce act. The call came after the court was in hearing with a Delhi-based man who is seeking to scrape off the two-year mandatory separation before a Christian couple can move court for divorce by mutual consent. For other religions, the separation period is listed as one year.

    Why BJP has not come with a framework yet?
