The expression “Uniform Civil Code” literally means “Common Code” for each and every person living in the country without any religious discrimination”. The main subject is whether our country is developed enough to introduce this common code after getting the Constitution of India. This common law in India that extends to all Indians, regardless of their religion. In the realm of personal law, India has a set of concurrent personal laws that apply to members of different groups. An optional secular system of personal law is included in this personal law system. This paper attempts to assess the whole dialogue across the UCC, the arguments on its necessity, role of British in introducing the idea of UCC, role of constituent assembly and of renowned political heads in reforming the code. If passed, the Civil Code will govern the personal and significant directives of all religious groups related to matrimonial issues, separation issues, issues pertaining to adoption and acceptance, guardianship, inheritance or birth rights, land inheritance and other secular affairs in the Indian state, and promote fraternity. Realize the unity between people by providing people with a set of personal laws that unify the core values of humanism. It is to be believed that the personal legal system used in India today is the result of later colonial reformers of various religious leaders trying to adapt their legal system to their own interests and to trace the roots of current debates. The debates of the century and the beginning of the 20th century on legal reform.
