The move comes just a day after the cabinet signed off on changes to the triple talaq law, officially called Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill 2017, to dilute two contentious provisions.

The first change allows only a woman, or a close relative, to file a police case against her husband for instant triple talaq, the Islamic practice that allows men to divorce their wives immediately by uttering the word "talaq" (divorce) thrice.

The Central government was set to table the landmark triple talaq bill in Rajya Sabha today but Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar has said that it

The second amendment allows her to drop the case if the husband comes around later and they arrive at a compromise.

But the government hasn't toned down the three year jail penalty for the husband or the provision that only empowers a magistrate, and not a local police officer, to release the accused on bail.

A third amendment mandates that the magistrate can decide on releasing the husband on bail only after hearing the wife.

The original bill was cleared by the Lok Sabha last year but has been stuck in the Rajya Sabha where the BJP-led national coalition NDA is in minority.

The government hopes that the tweaks cleared by the cabinet would persuade some non-NDA parties, which had genuine concerns about the misuse of the law, to support the bill in its new form.

The ruling BJP has already ordered all its lawmakers to be present in the Rajya Sabha in full strength, just in case.

It is not clear what the two big non-NDA parties, Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik's Biju Janata Dal and the AIADMK, think about the changes. Between them, the two parties have 22 lawmakers in the Rajya Sabha.

When Lok Sabha debated the bill last year, both had opposed the legislation. The BJD's Bhartruhari Mahtab had called the framing of the bill "faulty" and "flawed" and insisted that it would be doing disservice to Muslim women. The AIADMK also wanted the centre to remove the provision of three years jail for husbands.

Neither of them voted against the bill but abstained from voting.

On Thursday, it was with the support of these two parties that lawmaker Harivansh, a first-time lawmaker backed by the BJP-national coalition, secured 125 votes and won the Rajya Sabha deputy chairman election.
