The Uniform Civil Code, or the UCC, has recently been the subject of debates and discussions. The present paper seeks to provide insights into the UCC in India, tracing its roots, latest developments, and implications. The author, through this paper, has tried to conduct a comparative overview of UCC developments in other modern democracies, such as, the United States of America, France, and Turkey, thereby shedding useful insights on the diverse approaches to the complex provision in question. Additionally, the paper also has tried to explore the rationale behind implementation of UCC, drawing on international instruments such as Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties (VCLT), the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), and the Human Rights Committee (HRC) report. Further, the author, has also delved into various instances, explicit or implicit, found under Indian Constitution, apart from Article 44, wherein the references to the topic in question has been found. Finally, the author has concluded by suggesting how this dream can be made a reality. Also, the author has tried to provide valuable insights that can serve as helpful tools for realising this distant dream, which seems to be lurking even in the contemporary world.
