Surrogacy has provided opportunities to have a genetically related child to the couples who are unable to reproduce through artificial reproduction and in vitro fertilization. I show that while transnational surrogacy may challenge conventional understandings of kinship and family, it simultaneously renaturalizes state definitions of citizenship and motherhood. It also discusses different kinds of surrogacy after which it mentions a discussion on commercialization of Surrogacy in India. By the use of this process through commercial surrogacy not only the intended couples will be benefited but the poor women can also earn one, by becoming surrogate mother for couples. Through the surrogacy (regulation) bill 2019 provisions have been made to regulate centers providing surrogacy, although bill completely prohibited commercial surrogacy.
