The Supreme Court on Wednesday sought response from the Centre on a petition seeking uniform succession and inheritance laws, which are gender and religion neutral.

The petition, filed by BJP leader and lawyer Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay, said uniform laws in succession and inheritance are necessary to secure justice, equality and dignity of women, and alleged that the central government has not taken any steps in this regard till date.

“The injury caused to the citizens is extremely large because gender-biased and religion biased personal laws relating to succession and inheritance are not only against the constitutional ethos of gender justice and gender equality, guaranteed under articles 14-15, but also against the dignity of women,” the plea said. A three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) SA Bobde issued notice to the Centre.
