The Union Cabinet on Tuesday approved four ordinances, including the one making triple talaq a criminal offence, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said.

The other ordinances approved by the Cabinet include the Companies (Second Amendment) ordinance, the Medical Council ordinance and the ordinance against unregulated deposits (Ponzi schemes).

Jaitley said the government has to bring these ordinances as the matters are pending for a long time and could not be cleared by the Rajya Sabha due to disruptions.

The triple talaq Bill has lapsed in Rajya Sabha after a consensus with Opposition could not be built.

The government had first brought the triple talaq ordinance in September 2018.

The government steered clear of an ordinance on the controversial Citizen Amendment law.
