The Uttarakhand Uniform Civil Code Bill represents a landmark legal reform in Uttarakhand, aiming to establish uniform laws across various religions in matters of marriage, divorce, inheritance, and property. It also includes provisions for regulating live-in relationships, requiring heterosexual couples to register their relationships with the government. This bill is seen as a step towards ensuring gender equality and ending discrimination against women. However, it has also attracted criticism for intruding into personal lives and lacking provisions for same-sex couples.
