Surrogacy i.e ‘rented womb’, ‘Baby factory’, ‘true angels’ as it is termed by various researchers is an interdisciplinary topic that has been scrutinized by medical practitioners, researchers, academics, lawmakers, and the media for how they consider the surrogate's role, the use of technology, and the future of the kid delivered through the arrangement. In this case, Commercial gestational surrogacy and transnational surrogacy have arisen in India over the past two decades. Though India has passed the Bill for regulating Surrogacy in 2019 which strictly bans this transnational commercial surrogacy, the Bill has to become law. The effect of which during this Covid-19 pandemic is that several neonates have been left stranded as a result of the nationwide coronavirus quarantine. More than a dozen such newborns have been waiting for their biological parents to pick them up at the Anand surrogacy center in Gujarat, some for more than a month. This is a serious issue. Individual lives and parent-child relationships have been disrupted, as has the worldwide surrogacy industry. Through this paper, a brief account of Transnational Surrogacy in India, as well as the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the said process, has been tried to portray.
