Bill Making Surrogacy Only For Couples Who Cannot Conceive Passed In The Lok Sabha

The Lok Sabha has passed the Surrogacy(Regulation Bill) seeking a complete ban on commercial surrogacy in India.

The bill, which was introduced in 2016 was passed with a voice vote on Wednesday.

Under the proposed act, henceforth, only altruistic surrogacy, which is surrogacy services given by a person who is genetically related to either of the intending parents, without any monetary consideration will be allowed. Also, a woman can be a surrogate only once in her lifetime.
