The bill on surrogacy (Regulation) The Lok Sabha passed the 2019 bill on Friday, December 17th 2021. The parliament adjourned after enacting the bill.
In 2019, India’s health and family welfare minister, Dr Harsh Vardhan, introduced the bill in the Lok Sabha. It was forwarded to Rajya Sabha for consideration and approval. On 9th December 2021, the Rajya Sabha passed it and transmitted it to the Lok Sabha.
The bill establishes some form and building agencies to supervise and regulate the processes and procedures. In India, it prohibits commercial surrogacy advertising and permits altruistic surrogacy. In an altruistic surrogacy, the intended parents do not pay the surrogate mother, but she covers with postpartum birth insurance.
The National Surrogacy Board (NSB) and the State Surrogacy Board (SSB) will form to oversee the surrogacy procedure.
According to the bill, the pair must have a valid certificate for surrogacy eligibility, and Indian heterosexual couples must have been legally married for at least five years and be between the ages of 23 and 55 (for females) and 26 and 55 (for men) (males).
