School of Law, IMS Unison University, Dehradun is going to organize the National Seminar on “Surrogacy: Ethical, Legal, Socio-Economic Issues”.
Date: 20th – 21st January, 2017
In 2005, the ICMR (Indian Council of Medical Research) had framed guidelines for ARTs (Assisted Reproductive Technologies) Clinics. However, there is no legal mechanism to enforce them or monitor compliance by clinics. The ART Bill was first drafted in 2010 by the previous UPA government. The draft prepared in the year 2012 has banned only those foreigners from hiring Indian surrogates whose own countries of origin didn’t recognize commercial surrogacy as Indian practices. The Law Commission of India submitted the 228th report on Assisted Reproductive Technology procedures discussing the importance and need for surrogacy, and also the steps taken to control surrogacy arrangements. The Supreme Court of Indian in the 2008 Manji case held that commercial surrogacy was permissible in India. This was the genesis of the Assisted Reproductive Technology (Regulation) Bill, 2014.
