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 opposition parties are said to be planning for either amendment against criminalising triple talaq or referring the Bill to a select committee for detailed consideration.
The Centre will seek to pass legislations on the insolvency and bankruptcy code as well as criminalisation of the instant triple talaq practice in the upper house, where it needs the support of some Opposition parties for the goal.
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. "Let it go for reconsideration to Select Committee", says NCP leader Majeed Memon.
However, the BJP is confident of achieving its goal of passing the Bill. "Hope the opposition, including the Congress, supports it", he said. The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill is listed for introduction in the Rajya Sabha by Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on January 2, according to the list of business of the Upper House.
Lok Sabha is also expected to pass the National Medical Commission Bill 2017 today. It was passed after the House rejected a string of amendments moved by various Opposition members.
The bill, if implemented into a law, will make Triple Talaq a criminal offense.
Therefore, a meeting between the ruling BJP and the opposition led by Congress and chaired by chairman of the upper house of Parliament, M Venkaiah Naidu is likely to be held on Tuesday.
