    As per the prevalent ICMR guidelines, a child born through ART( Artificial Medical Psysicology) has a right to seek information about his genetic parent/surrogate mother on reaching 18 years of age. But information relating to the name and address (the personal identity of the gamete donor or the surrogate ) is excluded from it .Parents are not obliged to provide the information on their own when the child turns 18 years but no attempt must be made to hide it from the child should an occasion arise when this issue becomes important for the child.
