Act & Provision for Imprisonment:

The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Act, 2019 declares the instant divorce granted by pronouncement of talaq three times as void and illegal. It provides for imprisonment for a term up to 3 years and fine to the husband who practiced instant Triple Talaq.
Muslim woman, upon whom Talaq was pronounced also granted custody of children and subsistence allowance to be paid by the husband.
Muslim women now have a legal protectionagainst the whimsical and irrationalpronouncement of Triple Talaq.
The Act also works as deterrence for husbands whointend to divorce their wives in this manner.
