Legal experts term Uttarakhand UCC on live-in relationship as invasion of privacy

Another senior advocate and noted criminal lawyer, Geeta Luthra, said that it is completely absurd the bill on live-in relationship issues. “You can not do this. You can not ask the men and women living together — to inform it to the authorities concerned their status of living together, of they are having a live-in relationship If they are consenting adults staying together.”The introduction of the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) bill in the Uttarakhand Assembly has sparked debate among lawyers and others.Uttarakhand govt in 2021-22 had formed a panel, which is being led by retired Supreme Court judge Ranjana Prakash Desai. The panel also comprised retired justice Pramod Kohli, social activist Manu Gaur, former Uttarakhand Chief Secretary Shatrughan Singh, and Vice Chancellor of Doon University, Surekha Dangwal.
