At the time of the origination of constitutionalism in India, the framers of the Indian Constitution were of the view to have a Uniform civil code for their citizens as represented in Article 44 of the Indian Constitution which lays down that “The state shall work towards administering the same set of civil laws to govern the people belonging to different regions and religions.” This article is about the study of much debated topic of suitable legislation on Uniform civil code for all the citizens of India. The Supreme Court of India through a number of judgements have taken a forward step towards the establishment of Uniform civil code ,but still no concrete step has been taken so far in this regard. It is due to the unresolved debate on the Freedom of Religion which is granted by Article 25 and Article 26 of the Indian Constitution. Moreover, the Supreme Court of India in its observations has made it very clear that Uniform civil code does not invade upon the “Right to Religion”. Through this article the idea of the Uniform civil code is proposed by keeping in mind the history of the country, its complex culture and as well as its current political and social scenario.
