New Delhi: The innate desire of leading a high-profile lifestyle and frequenting expensive hang-out places is forcing teenagers to grab any available opportunity to make quick money.
In a shocking exposure, the students in the age group of 15-18 years in the national capital are donating sperms to earn extra pocket-money and fulfill their never ending needs.
The engagement of students in this business here is on the rise. They are easily able to make almost Rs 1,000 to Rs 2,000 by donating a sample of their sperm.
However, the guidelines proposed by Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) for sperm donation strictly prohibits engagement of teenagers below 18 years in such activities but the teens and the medical professionals are frequently breaching the law for their respective purposes.
While the sperm banks are mushrooming at a higher pace in the country, the donor community is hardly growing. The psychology and the social order are barring the people from being enthusiastic donors.
At such a juncture the demand of sperm for the couples who are looking forward to the In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) for becoming parents are being fulfilled by the student community desirous to make extra bucks.
Dr Archana Dhawan from Varchar IVF Clinic said “We receive dozens of phone calls from teenagers between age group of 15-18 years everyday desiring for sperm donation. This is emerging as the easy method of making money for the students.”
