Why are foreigners not allowed to resort to India in order to become parents through surrogacy?

India is a country where most of its population lives in poverty, so the economic need of families, the vulnerability of surrogates and the emergence of the black market around this practice made the government see the need to strictly regulate the process.

Thus, the first measure taken was to restrict access to foreigners, who account for more than 70-80% of applicants for surrogacy in the country. Initially, surrogacy was allowed only for foreigners from a country that allowed it, but the new bill prohibits access for all foreigners.
