Law governing surrogacy assumes great importance in India because India has often been termed as the ‘surrogacy capital of the world’. Prior to 2008, surrogacy (essentially commercial) was being briskly carried out in India without any efforts by the Government to set up a statutory regulatory mechanism. The turning point came in the year 2008 when the Supreme Court was called upon to deal with a case revolving around surrogacy. This case wasBaby Manji Yamda v. Union of India.In 2016, a Surrogacy (Regulation) Bill was introduced.But thisbill lapsed owing to the adjournment sine die of the parliament session. The exact same form of bill was reintroduced and passed by the Lok Sabha in 2019 but the bill would require to be passed by the Rajya Sabha. Thus, till today we don’t have any specific law on surrogacy in India. This article lays light on surrogacy, its development in India and having a special mention on legal and judicial development.
