New Delhi: Monsoon Session of Parliament will end today. Important bills including TripleTalaq Bill are likely to be taken up in RajyaSabha. Yesterday cabinet approved 3 changes to Triple Talaq Bill.
Earlier a day PM Modi led Union Cabinet has taken solid steps to address concerns which were raised after the Triple Talaq bill was passed by the Lok Sabha in December last year.
The three key amendments in the bill are:
1. The first change in regarding the filing of an FIR in case of an offence. The cabinet has approved amendments which mandate that the FIR be either filed by the victim of triple talaq or immediate blood relations.
2. The second change, the offence has been now made compoundable. Compoundable offences are those offences where, a complainant mean the one who has filed the case enter into a compromise and agrees to have the charges dropped against the accused. It means that the scope for a mediation and compromise has been available again.
3. The third change is the inclusion of a provision of granting bail to men convicted of giving instant triple talaq to their wives; the only magistrate can grant bail after hearing the victim.
All the other sections will remain the same.
