This paper focuses on the need for a Uniform Civil Code in India in reference to the diversity of inheritance laws under different communities. The inheritance laws are different under different personal laws of India. Though they are evolving with time even then they are a reflection of a patriarchal society where men and their relations are preferred over the women. There are also some communities in existence whose customs and traditions are not looked into by the lawmakers or even the courts. The UCC will help in getting rid of all these social backlashes prevalent under the inheritance laws. The paper shall also briefly discuss a model for the UCC in India.
