India’s government has instructed fertility clinics not to allow foreigners to use local surrogate mothers to bear children as it seeks to impose tighter limits on a growing industry that has raised concerns about the exploitation of women. In the Month of October a government body, said surrogacy services could be provided only to married Indian couples. The availability of medical infrastructure and potential surrogates, combined with international demand, has fueled the growth of the industry. Surrogate mothers receive medical, nutritional and overall health care through surrogacy agreements.
Excellent medical facilities, convenience in approach, abundant information on the Internet, favourable legal position and economic viability has immensely positioned India as a preferred destination for international surrogacy arrangements. With the passage of time, India has positioned itself as a pioneer in Surrogacy Arrangements, helping thousands of couple achieving parenthood. The process of surrogacy is no more closed as it used to be earlier and much information is available even in the online space about surrogacy arrangements in India.
The desire to procreate is a very fundamental attribute of the human race. Sadly though, many are denied the joy of parenthood due to several reasons, biological or otherwise. With the developments in reproductive sciences and technologies the barriers to parenthood are no longer as formidable as they once were. Over the years, surrogacy has evolved as a much-preferred mode of bringing a child into this world, for childless couples who cannot biologically afford it otherwise. India, in particular has seen a rise in the recourse to surrogacy as an ideal technique for childless couples to enjoy the pleasures of parenthood. The only impediments the system faces now relate to the legal tangles that manifest it in the various phases of the process involved.
