Indian Government Raises Concerns Over IVF Treatment Age Limit Following Birth of Sidhu Moosewala’s Brother

The government has raised concerns regarding the age limit for conceiving a child through IVF, following the recent birth of late singer Sidhu Moosewala’s second brother. The singer’s father, Balkaur Singh, alleges harassment by the district administration for documentation related to the child.

The couple welcomed their child last Saturday, nearly two years after the tragic death of their singer-son. Charan Kaur, aged 58, had conceived through the In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) technique earlier this year, as confirmed by a family relative.

In an Instagram video, Balkaur Singh appealed to the administration to cease the harassment, stating, “The district is harassing me to provide documents about the child. I urge the government and the Chief Minister to allow the treatment to proceed. I will present all legal documents when required.”

The Union health ministry has intervened, seeking a report from the Punjab government on Charan Kaur’s IVF treatment, noting that the age limit for IVF procedures is between 21 and 50 years under Section 21(g)(i) of the Assisted Reproductive Technology (Regulation) Act, 2021.

Balkaur Singh also announced the birth of his second son on Instagram, sharing a photo and affirming the family’s well-being. Sidhu Moosewala, the elder son and a prominent singer-turned-politician, tragically lost his life in Punjab’s Mansa district on May 29, 2022.
