Govt planning to scrap Muluki Ain

The government is planning to scrap the Muluki Ain (Civil Code) with a new legislation on civil codes.

The government has already registered a Bill to amend the Muluki Ain with a purpose to develop it as an Act.

With introduction of the Act, the Ain introduced in Rana regime will be scrapped.

Because of the Bill, the Legislature-Parliament regular budget session is likely to extend for at least 15 days.

Lawyers, however, differ over whether it is right to create a new regulation by ending the existence of Muluki Ain as it holds a significant stature in the world community as an important and practical legal instrument.

The Muluki Ain clause includes a number of important subjects as property partition, polygamy, counterfeit currency transaction, theft, punishment and court procedures.
