The Indian Council of Medical Research, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare had constituted a Committee specifically to decide under the proposed Assisted Reproductive Technology (Regulation) Bill, 2013. NCW was also a Member in this Committee. NCW after receiving suggestions and examining the various related laws/provisions has taken the view that:- Formula should not be specified in the proposed Act, but needs to be included in the Rules framed thereto, Surrogate mother may be considered as a skilled employee and that since there is no single uniform minimum wage rate across the country, the level of compensation should take into account other factors of health, emotional and psychological costs etc.
