Three petitions have been filed in the Supreme Court urging to transfer the petitions pending in the Delhi High Court on the issue of Uniform Civil Code (UCC) to the apex court. The transfer petitions have been filed by Amber Zaidi, Nighat Abbas and Danish Iqbal, whose separate petitions seeking implementation of the Uniform Civil Code are pending in the Delhi High Court.

However, the pleas said that the High Court had issued notices to several central ministries on PILs filed on the issue of Uniform Civil Code on March 20, 2020, but there was no adequate hearing thereafter.

He said since the petitions involved “very important constitutional issues”, it would be appropriate to transfer them to the apex court for final disposal.
