NHRC Issues Notices to Health Ministry, ICMR Over Dubious In-Vitro Fertilization Clinics

The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has issued notices to the union health ministry and the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) seeking explanation on the Media reports about dubious In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) clinics in Delhi.

The Media reports said that most IVF clinics, helping childless couples to become parents, were operating in Delhi without registration.

"The commission has observed that the contents of the report, if true, raise a serious issue of violation of human rights of childless couples in the country," a statement from NHRC said on Friday.

The media report revealed that out of over 300 such clinics operating in the national capital, only 39 were registered with the ICMR.

NHRC has sought the response of the union health ministry and the ICMR within two weeks.

According to the report, many such centers do not have adequate trained manpower and infrastructure to handle these highly sophisticated technologies and the services provided by some of these clinics were highly questionable.
