With the approval of the president, the ordinance will come into force for the third time in less than a year.

President Ram Nath Kovind on Thursday approved the Muslim Women’s Ordinance (Protection of Marriage Rights), 2019. The ordinance makes the practice of instant triple talaq a criminal offense.

The Union cabinet gave its approval to reissue the ordinance on Tuesday. The government did not approve the bill, known as the triple talaq project, in the Rajya Sabha during the Parliament Budget session.

With the approval of the president, the ordinance will come into force for the third time in less than a year.

“The proposed ordinance will protect the rights of married Muslim women and prevent divorce through the practice of instantaneous and irrevocable” talaq-e-biddat “on the part of their husbands,” the government said in a press release on Tuesday. “It will discourage the practice of triple talaq, that is, talaq-e-biddat. The enactment of the proposed Ordinance will grant the subsistence allowance rights, the custody of the minor children to the victims of triple talaq, ie, talaq-e-biddat. “
