With the above statement, the members of Rajya Sabha also talked that only close relative can act as a surrogate of commissioning parent who must have been legally married for at least five years. The final statement of the surrogacy bill is yet to be declared by the officials.

According to the latest news on Surrogacy Bill India, Dated 5th Feb 2020, based on a parliament panel some changes have been proposed in the last surrogacy modification.

There were significant fifteen changes recommended by the parliament panel proposing the first change is that- not only close-one but any woman (who wants to be a surrogate) can act as a surrogate of an intended couple. 

Also, the panel said, waiting for five years to choose surrogacy or to have a baby through a surrogate is too long for the couple who wish to have a child; for this reason, there would be some flexibility on this aspect.

The committee has also put forward that, a surrogate can also be a divorcee or a widow (of 35-45 year); in short we can say ‘Single Indian Woman’ may also be allowed to avail surrogacy.

The panel has also suggested increasing the insurance cover for the surrogate mother from proposed 16 months to 36 months.

  • Non-functional  uterus
  • Woman with a severe chronic medical condition, in which the patient cannot carry a normal pregnancy

With the suggested deletion of ‘Infertility’, any needy person can seek and plan for surrogacy at any time on the ground of a medical certificate indicating the requirement of gestational surrogacy.

The panel has proposed that PIOs – Persons of Indian Origin may settle on surrogacy India (once the intended person gets the certificate of the recommendation from the surrogacy boards).
