SC asks Centre for panel report on women and family law

New Delhi, March 28 (IANS) The Supreme Court on Monday asked the Centre to place before it the report on “Women and Law ” by a high level committee that had undertaken the assessment of family laws with focus on laws relating to liability, divorce, children custody, inheritance and succession.

Asking the government to submit the report which has not been made public yet, the apex court bench comprising Chief Justice T.S. Thakur and Justice Uday Umesh Lalit gave the government and other parties, including All India Muslim Personal Law Board, six weeks to respond to the suo motu motion and a plea challenging the validity of the triple ‘talaq’ under the Muslim personal law.

Shayara Bano has urged the court to declare that triple ‘talaq’ as illegal and as in violation of the Articles 14, 15, 21 and 25 of the Constitution.
