The examination of the Surrogacy Bill 2021 involves a comprehensive exploration of its key provisions. On the commercial front, the study scrutinizes the regulation of surrogacy agencies, the intricacies of compensating surrogate mothers, and the prohibition of commercial surrogacy for profit. Simultaneously, it delves into the reproductive rights dimensions, assessing eligibility criteria for intended parents, consent and autonomy of surrogate mothers, and safeguards against exploitation and coercion. This article examines the laws governing commercial surrogacy, paying particular attention to how the Surrogacy Bill may affect things. Important measures pertaining to the commercial side of surrogacy are introduced in this bill, such as surrogacy agency regulation, surrogate mother compensation plans, and the outlawing of profit-driven commercial surrogacy. Additionally, the study examines the moral implications of commercial surrogacy while taking feminist and societal perspectives into account. It also examines possible objections and challenges to the bill, addressing issues with its overall effectiveness, enforcement, and exploitation. The study's findings provide insights into how commercial surrogacy will develop in the future. As the study progresses, it predicts future developments in surrogacy law and makes suggestions for possible revisions and enhancements.
