Britain is the single biggest source of clients for India's booming 1.5 billion pounds surrogacy industry known as the 'baby factory', a media report here said on Sunday.

The Sunday Telegraph reported that there were nearly 1,000 unregulated clinics in India, many specialising in helping Britons become parents. Britons reportedly pay an average of £25,000 for a child produced using surrogate mothers in India. "It is estimated that 2,000 births to surrogate mothers took place in the country last year, with most experts agreeing that Britain is the biggest single source of people who want to become parents in this way," the report said.
