The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2018, commonly known as the Triple Talaq Bill, was introduced in the Lok Sabha on December 17.
Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad introduced the Bill, despite opposition from Congress member Shashi Tharoor.
Under the proposed law, giving instant triple talaq will be illegal and void and will attract a jail term of three years for the husband.
The introduced bill seeks to replace the Triple Talaq ordinance that was passed by the government in September 19.
