On last day of Monsoon Session, triple talaq bill to be tabled in Rajya Sabha

Prime News, National (New Delhi), August 10:- The much-debated Triple Talaq Bill will be tabled in Rajya Sabha on Friday a day after Union Cabinet approved an amendment to the bill.

The Union Cabinet on Thursday proposed three changes in the Muslim Women Protection of Rights on Marriage Bill, 2017 – first, only the victim, a blood relation or relation by marriage are allowed to lodge FIR in the case, second, the case can be dropped if husband and wife agree to settle their differences and third, a magistrate can grant bail to men found guilty of giving instant triple talaq to their wives.

However, the offence still remains non-bailable.

If the amended bill is passed in the Upper House, it will have to go back to Lok Sabha for approval of the amendments.

On December 29, the Lok Sabha passed the bill which seeks to make instant triple talaq a criminal offence, a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government tabled it in the lower house.  (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
