Updated : September 20, 2018 08:06 AM IST

The Union Cabinet on Wednesday approved the ordinance to ban instant triple talaq and make it a punishable offence.
According to the ordinance, giving instant triple talaq has been made illegal and void, and will attract a jail term of three years for the husband.
Seeking to allay fears that the law could be misused, the government has included certain safeguards in it such as adding a provision of bail for the accused before trial.
