In surrogacy basically, the womb of a female is used to get a child. People can adopt this practice in circumstances such as infertility, same-sex couples, single parents, etc. Surrogacy is a popular exercise in India for poor females to get money from rich and childless people. People often pay a lot to surrogate mothers. To regulate the practice of surrogacy an act has been passed in 2016 which completely makes commercial surrogacy (where only earning money is the aim in exchange for a child) illegal. According to the law people wishing to get a surrogate mother would have to go to the governmental agencies for this and then everything will be done by the process laid down by the act. Hence, you can be with a child with both the ways. Both are legal and regulated by Indian laws.
