4. It was announced on Tuesday by the Central Government that the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Amendment Rules, 2021, will come into effect in the year 2021.

If the termination is needed for a period longer than 24 weeks, the Act calls for the creation of a medical board that will provide an opinion on the matter.
