However, the principal opposition party may also raise the issue of criminal provisions in the proposed law.
Earlier in the day, the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill 2017, seeking to criminalise the practice of instant triple talaq was tabled for debate in the Lok Sabha, by Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad.
The draft bill states that "any pronouncement of talaq by a person upon his wife, by words, either spoken or written or in electronic form or in any other manner whatsoever, shall be void and illegal."
There is also a provision of imposing pecuniary fine violators and imprisonment for upto three years.
Triple talaq is the practice of Muslim men divorcing their wives by saying "talaq" three times. The constitution allows Muslims, the biggest minority in the country, to regulate marriages, divorces and inheritance through their own civil code.
But in August, the Supreme Court had ruled that the practice is "void", "illegal" and "unconstitutional".
