The Supreme Court on Monday has ruled out that unmarried mothers can have legal guardianship of their children without father's consent. The apex court bench headed by Justice Vikramajit Sen gave the order while recalling the earlier order of a guardianship court and asking it to re-examine the plea by the unwed mother seeking guardianship of the child without issuing notice to the father.
