Instant Triple talaq The proposed law, which engages Muslim ladies, applies to instant triple talaq in "oral, composed, electronic or some other frame". Any announcement of talaq-e-biddat by a Muslim man should be "unlawful and void", says the draft law. 

Over three months after the Supreme Court “set aside” the practice of instant triple talaq or talaq-e-biddat, the Centre has drawn up a draft law which makes it a “cognizable and non-bailable” offence, punishable with three years jail and a monetary fine. The draft law Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Act also allows a woman who has been given instant triple talaq to move court, seeking “subsistence allowance” for herself and dependent children, as well as custody of minor children. A Bill to this effect is likely to be tabled in the winter session of Parliament, highly placed government sources said on Friday

The terms of the proposed enactment were finished after talks, by a Group of Ministers (GoM) which included Rajnath Singh, Sushma Swaraj, Arun Jaitley and Ravi Shankar Prasad.

In a landmark verdict on August 22, the Supreme Court had “set aside” the centuries-old practice of instant triple talaq in which Muslim men divorce their wives by uttering talaq three times in quick succession.

Three of the five judges on the Constitution Bench Justices Rohinton F Nariman, Uday U Lalit and Kurian Joseph called the training un-Islamic and "discretionary" and couldn't help contradicting the view that triple talaq was an indispensable piece of religious practice. 

Yet, the minority decision of then Chief Justice of India J S Khehar and Justice S Abdul Nazeer underlined the power of Muslim individual law and said the training delighted in established insurance and was past the extent of legal investigation. They were of the view that Parliament ought to consider a "proper" law to manage the issue of talaq-e-biddat.
