Triple talaq no more legal: Modi government approves ordinance

On Wednesday, the Union Cabinet has given its approval to an ordinance on triple talaq even though the bill on the issue is pending in the Rajya Sabha.
 

 
Now it will be sent to the President for his assent and once it gets the President’s approval, the ordinance will come into effect.
 
When the ordinance comes into force, it has to be approved by Parliament within six months and if government fails to do it, the ordinance has to be repromulgated.
