Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Friday said a bill to ban polygamy practices will be introduced in the state during the upcoming budget session of the assembly.

Addressing a press conference, the chief minister said the draft of the bill is being scrutinised by the Law Department at present.

He further stated that we are lining up to end polygamy in the state in the upcoming budget session of the assembly. He added it is with the Law Department for vetting.

On the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) to be considered in an upcoming special four-day session of the Uttarakhand assembly starting from February 5, Sarma said his government was looking forward to the legislation on UCC.   

He said his government will monitor them and see if they can implement it fully. We have time to examine it and proceed accordingly, Sarma said while addressing the press conference.

According to reports, the budget session of the Assam assembly will start on February 5 and conclude on February 28.

In May 2023, the government constituted a four-member committee headed by retired Guwahati High Court judge Rumi Phukan to examine the legislative competence of the state legislature to enact a law to ban polygamy and asked the panel to submit a report within two months.

In August 2023, a panel headed by Phukan submitted its report on the polygamy ban possibility to the Sarma.

After receiving the report, Sarma said the committee had told him that the state has such a right, but the legislation must be given final assent by the President and not the governor.

The chief minister further said that since existing state laws on Muslim marriages don’t specify the eligible age of the brides and groom, the committee also suggested keeping a provision to mention the eligible age for marriage for all in the proposed polygamy law so that there is no lack of clarity with that and rules under Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.
