The Supreme Court has asked the Central Government its side on a petition seeking equal basis for divorce, maintenance and alimony for citizens. It was said in the petition that the basis of divorce and maintenance should be same for all citizens irrespective of religion they follow.

A bench of CJI UU Lalit and Justice Ravindra Bhatt on Monday also sought details of other such petitions from the petitioners so that they can be considered together. The petitions have sought to fix the age of common tattoo, succession and marriage. In addition, a petition sought an equal ‘gender and religion-neutral’ basis for all citizens in the payment of maintenance and alimony in matrimonial disputes.

It sought to remove discrepancies on the basis of succession and inheritance and to make them gender-neutral, religion-neutral and equal for all citizens. In another petition, there was a demand to establish equal grounds for divorce in terms of the constitution and international law. Advocate Ashwini Upadhyay’s petition said that despite independence and the country becoming a socialist, secular, democratic republic, the laws of maintenance and alimony are not only complicated but mostly against the Constitution. They are not equal, rational and just.
