The opposition parties said the bill should be referred to a parliamentary panel for a deliberation and fine-tuning.

Recently, the bill was passed without much opposition in the Lok Sabha as the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government enjoys an absolute majority in the Lower House of Parliament.

The Bill which also aims at awarding a three-year jail term to husbands practising triple talaq was earlier cleared by the Lok Sabha.

The bill is facing reservations from some opposition parties over its misuse by women in the future.

Senior officials who did not want to be quoted told ET that during internal, high-level discussions on the triple talaq bill, all stakeholders were satisfied that the proposed law doesn't stop Muslim women from availing rights available to them under any other law.

The bill seeks to make instant triple talaq in any form spoken, in writing or by electronic means such as email, SMS and WhatsApp as bad or illegal and void.

Ahead of the introduction of the bill in the Rajya Sabha today, the opposition parties are slated to meet today morning to decide the course of action on the bill.

The bill was passed after the House rejected a series of amendments moved by various opposition members.

The department of justice had observed that the "possibility of resolution of matrimonial disputes through conciliation as per the extant provisions of the Family Courts Act, 1984, if found legally tenable for Muslim women too, could be explored". "This bill, I believe, will be passed in the Rajya Sabha", said Tomar. Therefore, the utterance will have no meaning in law and the marriage shall remain intact.

Before ending his column, Soz suggested the government to review the bill.
