Bhopal: Twin baby girls were born to a 35 -year-old surrogate mother, hired by a Non-Resident Indian (NRI) couple, at a hospital here, doctors said on Tuesday.

The twins were born on May 12 and all three are in good condition, infertility expert Monica Singh and child specialist Randhir Singh told reporters here.

The woman, whose name was not disclosed, was to receive Rs one lakh as compensation by the couple as per an agreement between them, they said.

But overjoyed at the birth of the twins, the couple, whose identity was also not disclosed, paid Rs 2 lakh to her, the doctors said, adding the NRIs also paid for expenses like food and medicine.

The NRI woman was unable to conceive as her uterus had been removed. Following this, the couple opted for surrogate pregnancy, they said.
