The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2017, or the Triple Talaq Bill, will not be taken up in the Rajya Sabha on Friday, Chairperson M. Venkaiah Naidu informed the House during the latter half of the session.

Friday being the last day of the monsoon session of Parliament, the Bill passed by the Lok Sabha will have to wait till the winter session for it to become law.

The Bill that prohibits divorce of Muslim couples by pronouncing 'talaq' back-to-back thrice by their husbands, was passed in the Lok Sabha on December 28, 2017.

The Union Cabinet on Thursday approved three crucial amendments to the Bill, including a provision for bail to an accused before the start of the trial. This was one of the three demands put forth by the Congress to support the Bill.

The other two demands are allowing a close relative of the victim to file a case on her behalf and to allow a magistrate to settle disputes between the couple, which the government has refused to incorporate in the Bill.
