Triple talaq bill to have three changes

The offence of triple talaq under the proposed law remains non- bailable.Senior Law Ministry officials however added that the Magistrate could grant bail after the husband agrees to pay compensation to the wife as provided in the bill.

Another change made is that the FIR would become cognisable only if it is filed by the victim wife or blood relations or relations by marriage.No outsider or third person can file an FIR. The third amendment made makes the offence of instant talaq compoundable.A Magistrate now has powers to settle a dispute and both parties have the liberty to withdraw the case. This bill has been cleared by the Lok Sabha and is pending for Rajya Sabha approval.
